As part of Class 3’s Viking topic the children have designed and sewn their own Viking longboat.  They firstly drew their own design out on to paper and then they cut out their templates.  These were then used to cut out their longboat parts from felt.  They then sewed these pieces onto a piece of hessian so all the pieces fitted together to create a longboat.

The children really enjoyed this activity. The class also learnt to use fine motor skills when cutting precisely and to practice their back stitch.
