Final project 5/6 Egyptian masks
Visit from plymouth college of art
At the end of last term, Year 5/6 were very lucky to take part in a workshop run by some students from Plymouth College of Art. The children had a fantastic time learning lots of different techniques to use when handling clay. They made pinch pots and coil pots, from this the children thought about how these techniques could be used to make their Egyptian death masks at the end of Autumn 2. I would like to say a huge thank you to the young ladies from the Art college, they really inspired our children. I am also very excited to see the finished products that year 5/6 produced!
