Willow Class (Year 4) have been learning about the wool cycle and how important weaving textiles was to the people living in the Iron Age. We looked at how wool was processed into yarn and then dyed and woven together using different methods. The children used wool carders to untangle some fleece, preparing it to be spun. They used pencil weavers to start some weaving of their own. They also started work on the loom that we are making, ready for our ‘Ancient Technologies Day’. The loom we are going to be using is a warp weighted loom.
