Weaving is acknowledged as one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world. The tradition of weaving dates back to Neolithic times – approximately 11,000 years ago. The basic principle of weaving was applied to interlace branches and twigs to create fences, shelters and baskets.

Using locally sourced branches, to create looms, class 4 have been learning the Stone Age skill of weaving as part of their topic ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’.

As part of our ‘Stone Age to the Iron Age’ topic, class 4 visited Arbor Low Henge Monument site and The  Great Masson Cavern in the Peak District.
