Year 6 Ceramics Day
Year 6 were treated to a day of design technology when staff and students from Mayfield School joined them at St. Philip's for mask making.
As part of their ‘Round the World’ topic, where Year 6 are looking at different cultures and climates around the world, the children designed a range of traditional African masks. Choosing their best design, they made a detailed template which they transferred onto clay.
The children benefitted from expert tuition from Tim Rees-Moorlah, head of ceramics at Mayfield School, and support from some of his A-level students.
