Greek Pottery!

Last week, the Upper Juniors created some fabulous Ancient Greek-style clay pots! Using the coil technique, an array of pottery was formed and is now being fired in the kiln, ready for painting!

Did you enjoy the pot making, Upper Juniors? What did you find challenging? What would you do differently next time?

    Greek pottery was so fun. I wish we could do it all over again. But mine would be better if we used pottery wheels.

  3. Ethan.B says:

    What I loved about the greek pottery was that we made it out of clay then we made our pots and then we had to let them dry and we might have a session of painting our beautiful pots.

  4. Ruby W says:

    Even though that making our pots was really hard it was very fun and I think that the Lower Juniors will really enjoy it. If we had the chance to do it all again I would definatly take more time on my planning because I made lots of little mistakes.

    I think that making the clay pots was really good but my pot didn’t do very well so I have decided that I am going to use my pot as a candle holder. I hope that the lower juniors don’t do as badly as I did 🙁

    I loved being able to make the Greek pots! I had never made a pot before and i certainly can say that it was the BEST lesson i had ever had in year 5.

  18. Zara G says:

    I thought it was so much fun making the Greek pottery but I also thought it was difficult.My favourite bit was making the coil.

  19. Harry J says:

    The Greek pots were made very carefully. Most people followed the small vidio.

  20. Katy W says:

    I adored the clay pot making, but I would have loved to have done better. My pot is not a failure, I am really proud of it, whatever others may think of it.

  21. Corah W says:

    What I liked about the clay was that we could do our shapes differently to others . All of my friends and I think it was amazing!In my thoughts I think we should do it again.

  22. Daniel R says:

    This has been the best topic EVER.I’d love to do it again. My favourite part was makeing coil clay pots and learning most of the Greek Gods names.I also enjoyed reading myths.If I could change anything it would be to have a mini sports game.

  23. Alice N says:

    I found it quite tricky to make a presentable pot, but I was quite pleased with my results. 😀 😛

  24. Jack S says:

    I same found making a presentable pot but i made a neat half pot! I really think that we should do it more often:) 🙂

  25. Katie W says:

    I loved making my greek pot as I had learnt lots of techniques like: scoring, curving and I learnt lots of interesting techniques about the shape of my pot! After watching the video in class of a lady making a clay pot, I felt a lot mor confident about how I was going to make my pot and what designs I was going to do!
