On Thursday 20th October, Class 1 had the chance to visit Jon the Potter on his home turf! After our CommuniCLAYtion and Language project last summer, we decided there was still a lot more we wanted to learn about clay, so we continued the topic into Class 1. Jon was able to visit us early on in the term to bring back our pots and collaborative flowerpot from the summer and invited us all to the Eastnor Pottery to see some of the things he and his wife Sarah have made. It was great to see the work of local artists - and to have a go at being sculptors! We all had another opportunity to work with clay and to master some of the techniques we were shown in Nursery. Our collaborative Christmas tree is going to look amazing in our classroom in December and we also had to make something very special in time for Christmas.

The children were able to explore the clay art in the garden, have a picnic in the gazebo, and to see the Kiln. It is going to take two days to fire our creations!

Thank you to Mel and Katrina, our parent helpers, for coming on the trip and a huge thank you to Jon and Sarah for our great day out. We shall look forward to seeing our finished products in time for the end of term.
