Billy Cart Club is officially ‘Rock ‘n’ and Rolling’ with the Year 3/4 starting to build their crazy contraptions. Using everything from planks of wood – kindly donated by Mr Nowlan - to twine and old rocking chairs, the students are well under way. Unfortunately, for some children, the harsh reality of not being able to build a two-storey monster truck cart with After burners and flaming pipes has hit home, and designs have been simplified.
For students not wishing to build Billy Carts, Miss Beth is teaching a class on how to decorate and sew pillowcases. The students are learning to print screen, tie-dye, fabric paint, and embellish all sorts of materials. Using the Sewing Machines in the Home Economics, the children will explore stitching patterns and joining techniques.
Billy Carts and Pillows will be show cased at an end of term ‘Picnic Afternoon’. The students will have the opportunity to race their Billy Carts and show-off their sewing skills. Further information about this afternoon will be released closer to the date.
