Knit & Natter Trip
This morning the children went on a trip to the local bowls club to visit their Knit and Natter group. The children have been taking part in a children led project around animals that help us and went to the Knit and Natter group to find out more and how wool is used and what it is used for. We also took our own wool, from the sheep belonging to one of the children, to show the ladies.
The lovely ladies at the Knit and Natter group were kind enough to show the children the knitting projects that they were working on. The knitting projects were wide ranging and included blankets and clothing for premature babies which were being donated to the local hospital, knitted elf hats and knitted bunnies which are sold around Easter time to raise funds for charity.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Cheriton Bowls Club and their Knit and Natter group for being so welcoming and answering all of our questions. The children really enjoyed their trip and told their peers all about it when we returned to the nursery.
