Winterfold House School

YR1 children from Winterfold House School worked with Jon the Potter from Eastnro Pottery in Herefordshire to make this collaborative clay sculpture based upon the book Handas SurpriseSpent a lovely day working with YR1 and Reception at Winterfold School in Worcestershire.

The book Handa’s surprise provided the inspiration for YR1’s creations with the children making a collaborative fruit bowl filled with fruit and animals from the tale.

Reception had been looking at The Three Billy Goats Gruff and opted to make pottery trolls as well as decorating a superb  pot made on the potter’s wheel. Big thanks to the staff who made me feel most welcome.

I was fortunate to sample a school dinner at lunchtime – the banana mouse a particular stand-out moment of a most enjoyable day!

Collaborative cooking pots

Collaborative clay cooking pots made by children at Brearley and Teviot Nursery School in BrumDelighted to be back working with the lovely children and staff at Brearley & Teviot Nursery School in Birmingham. We spent a creative and productive day working outside in the Spring sunshine making collaborative, terracotta cooking vessels.

Once the children’s work has been fired and glazed they will get to cook proper food in them during their forest school sessions in the great outdoors.
