Rag Rugging at the Cottage Museum

On Thursday 3rd October Year 2 continued their topic ‘Woodhall at War’ with a trip to the Cottage Museum in Woodhall Spa.  The children were able to handle a variety of items from the 1940’s, and learnt more about evacuation and rationing.  They also learnt about make do and mend and were fascinated by the toys, especially the sock puppet.  Plans are already underway for our own sock puppets!  We also tried our hand at ‘rag rugging’, using a hook and snips of material.  It was so much fun and the kind staff at the museum have allowed us to borrow the hooks and take a box of snips, so we can finish these rugs in class as part of our make do and mend lesson.  Thank you as always to the staff at the Cottage Museum for a fun morning full of learning.
