Reception have been learning the Magic Porridge Pot story. Today in art, Poppy Class made their own Magic Porridge Pinch Pots!
We rolled clay in to balls, then put our thumbs in to the clay before pinching the sides to make a pot. Pinch pots are a simple form of hand-made pottery that have been made since ancient times. We used clay tools to decorate the sides of our pots. When the clay has dried we are going to paint them.
Through making our pots we developed our fine motor skills, while also engaging with a story in a creative way.
