Y5 Leach Pottery Workshop

It was all hands on deck for Year 5 this week! We thoroughly enjoyed our clay modelling workshop led by the Leach Pottery, held in our new DTHQ in school. Using terracotta clay and a variety of specialist tools, we created unique, replica Viking longships in three stages. Learning techniques such as scoring, cutting, brushing with ‘slip’, shaping and moulding gave us all the opportunity to be boat builders! On behalf of all of Year 5, we would like to express our thanks to the staff from the Leach Pottery and look forward to seeing our longships after they have been fired in their kilns.
