Pupils have it covered

Pupils from Rice Lane Primary School are knitting up a storm after the success of their knitting club.

The pupils started a wool craft club in September 2015 to offer Year 6 children a ‘quiet’ lunchtime activity, with two members of staff volunteering to teach the girls knitting and crocheting.

Justine Clovis, assistant headteacher, said: “We meet every Friday for half an hour and it has been a huge success. I have learnt to knit alongside the girls, as well as another teacher, and it gives me a chance to spend time with Year 5/6 girls in a relaxed environment.

“This term we have made small squares for Liverpool Womens’ Hospital’s premature baby unit. As well as this, we have all contributed to making a blanket, small bootees and other members of staff have made and cardigans.

“We are now planning on making a woollen 3D display for our new foyer at the school which I am sure will show all our visitors the excellent work that our knitting club are producing”.
