Our School Rug


We collected old t-shirts from pupils, members of staff and parents and Mrs Odie cut the bottoms (below the arms) into strips and rolled them into balls ready for weaving. The top bits were kept for another project.

Using a peg loom we have been taking turns to add to the rug and encouraged other members of the school community and visitors to our school to be a part of the project too.

All ready to go!

Watch it grow!
