Year 5 Greek Pot Making

Wednesday, 09 October 2019

Year Five enjoyed an exciting trip to The  Ramsey Academy this week as part of their topic on The Ancient Greeks and ceramics.  They learnt new skills and made clay pots that will be fired and then painted at school. The children found making the pots a good challenge but they had great fun making them and they learnt a lot. Thank you to The Ramsey Academy for hosting the sessions.
