This term in art we have been exploring sculptures. Today, the children practiced manipulating clay to make a soap dish. The children flattened out their clay then cut a rectangular piece out of the clay. After that, they shaped the edges to make a bowl shape and then pinched the corners together to join them. Finally, they added finishing techniques linked to our ocean theme. The reason for this theme is that it has cross-curricular links to our Geography topic on ‘Continents and Oceans’ as well as our English book ‘The Snail and the Whale’.
