The school has been running the Lakeside Knitting Club since 2000 and is open to year 5 and 6 pupils. It is currently run by Mrs Doyle. Membership is £2.00 for pupils in Year 5 and £1.00 for Year 6. For this children receive their own knitting needles and plenty of wool to knit with, plus patterns to follow.
Since the club started, knitting has become quite fashionable with many celebs seen knitting during rehearsals, with their friends. Knitting is a sociable pastime and the girls and boys in the club enjoy supporting and advising each another and 'putting the world to right' while knitting.
The children learn a creative skill that seems to have been around since man first wore clothes!!
Venue Class 5D Wednesday 12.30pm till 1.00pm
