Class 2’s Clay Vessels

Within Art, Class 2 have been using clay to sculpt and decorate their own clay vessel. This was in relation to one of their recent History topics, Ancient Egypt. The pupils individually researched and designed their own clay vessel to replicate the vessels which the Ancient Egyptians would have made and used to store organs from mummified pharaohs within the tombs. Once made and dried out, the pupils had an opportunity to decorate them. This was done with acrylic paints and has allowed all the children’s own artistic styles to shine through whilst reflecting the historical context of the pieces.
