Working with clay!

Hi everyone,

This week the Second class children have been learning about clay. We have been working with our clay pieces for a short while each day and they are almost ready to go home.

We learned the Golden Rules of working with clay, we learned how to make pinch pot monsters, how to coil our clay into little pots and how to use scoring and slip techniques to add details to our clay. Everyone made a pinch pot monster and then the children had a choice between making little bowls, or another monster with the remaining clay.

After that we used paint to decorate our pieces, and today we used glue to glaze our pieces. They will hopefully be going home tomorrow.

Well done everyone, they look great!
