Welcome to Class 5

Class 5 have been exploring Greek pots this term. They have learned the names of some of them and what they were used for. The children started the term by exploring different patterns and pictures on traditional Greek pots and then used this to inspire them to create their own pot. After this the children practiced making their pot using coloured modelling dough before making the real thing with clay. Class 5 used the coil-method for making their pot, smoothing the coils and adding a plinth and the bottom or handles if needed. The children then painted them to look like terracotta and decorated them with Greek patterns and pictures. Many of the children found the clay difficult to work with so changed their designs during the making process.

They look fabulous!
