Class 1 Wet Felt Counting Mats

14 March 2023

Class 1 are learning to wet felt with Handwork Teacher, Elizabeth Ellean. Taking soft coloured fleece, the children create a pattern or a picture on a base of wool. Then, using warm soapy water, and lots of rubbing and rolling, the fleece is transformed into a strong and colourful mat. This will become their 'Counting Mat' for counters as they approach learning numbers and mathematics. A special thanks to our wonderful parent volunteers for helping bring these creations to life.
