Ashmansworthy clay projects

Yeah 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed themselves during their clay project mornings. Year 5s made a Greek pot. They used the coiling method to make their pots. They had their base, which was called a biscuit, then used long rolls of clay to coil around the base, they then had to smooth the coils both inside and out. They added another coil using slip (a clay paste) and repeated this process to the top.

Year 6s used a different method and made a 2021 mug. They had a slab of clay and rolled it around a coke can to make their mug shape. They then stencilled 2021 onto another piece of clay and added it to their mug.
