Craft Club Update

This term for Craft Club we have a group of Year 7 & 8 girls learning to make small quilts. They began by learning about colour, design, accurate measuring, and cutting fabrics with rotary cutters, special mats and rulers. This week most have finished their cutting out and some have started sewing. The time the girls are spending contributes to their community hours for the William Pike Challenge Award. Once completed, these quilts will be donated to our local neonatal unit at the hospital. Craft Club is led by Mrs Collis, and we are very grateful for the extra enthusiastic support and expertise of our 2 adult volunteers – Bev Randall and Chris Entwisle.

EPro8 Challenge

Fierce brainstorming, manipulation of materials and planning took place as children trialled for their place in one of two teams that Carncot will enter in the new EPRO8 (Engineer, Problem Solving and Create) Competition. Their current challenge is to use the materials provided to create a rock band. However, this is with a major twist … such as having to be 5 metres away from the instrument! 

We are looking forward to next week to see the creations that are made.
