WE ARE Family Workshops - Pottery
We hosted parents from our Early Years to take part in a family workshop making picture frames out of clay. The children, supported by their parents, learned the specific skills of rolling and cutting. They then experimented with cutters, stamps, extruders and stencils to decorate the frames. The families worked together to create flowers, figures, hearts and animals.
Participating in our family workshops meant that the EYFS children had lots of practise in the skills they will be learning and refining when they move into KS1. Their parents will also have a clear understanding of the DT curriculum. The families also painted their frames with coloured strips before they were ready to go into the kiln. Please have a look and see the finished results from the workshops, we’re all very proud!
