Year 3 Greek pottery afternoon

Year 3 Greek pottery afternoon

To celebrate their Ancient Greeks topic Year 3 invited parents into the classroom to help with the making and designing of a Greek pot.

Students have been learning about the Ancient Greeks and have looked at Greek warriors, The Trojan Horse, the Greek Olympics, Greek theatres, the location of Greece and Greek pottery concentrating on the patterns and stories that Greek pots told. 

The afternoon was a great success and the children developed their art and DT skills in using clay and clay tools as well as improving their understanding of Ancient Greek times. 

One parent said 'I really enjoyed making clay pots with my son and learning about Greek designs and patterns. We had a lot of fun, laughing when our pot didn’t turn out quite right. Everyone there really got involved and it was a great atmosphere.’
