“Local artist and felt-maker, Anna Turnbull, came into school to work with the children in Reception. We had a wonderful time learning about the life in the past of Northumbrian shepherds. The children loved trying on the huge heavy boots and using the crook, with which some of them became quite skilful! The children enjoyed trying to work out what the different artefacts had been used for – we came up with some very interesting ideas!”
“We also had an exciting time using the sheep’s wool to create a felted wall hanging of “The Good Shepherd”. The children learned how to handle the wool in different ways at each stage in the process. They were delighted with the end result and had lots of fun along the way.”
