ceramic alien made by a pupil at Colwall Primary SchoolEver read the book ‘Here come the aliens’ by Colin McNaughton? We used to love reading it to our kids at bedtime.

Class 1 & 2 at Colwall Primary School have been studying Aliens as part of this term’s learning topic and invited me in to make some pottery monsters and alien beasts. Here’s just one glazed example …be afraid, be very afraid!
