Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

Making Greek pots

(viewed 10561 times)

This is me with my greek pot and working with clay.
We were doing this because we were learning about the ancient Greeks and how they used clay. We spent a day learnng 3 ways of making pots (pinch pot, slab pot and coil pot). I made my pot using a coil base and a pinch pot; it took me 2 attempts to make it. The 1st time the top was too heavy and wouldn't stand up, the 2nd time it worked because I made the top smaller. After it dried I painted it and drew my design on. It shows the battle between Medusa and Perseus.

Some rude people. The pot's great and a lot of learning was done and fun had too - so it contains good memories.
