Ancient Greek Pottery


In the last week of term, after learning about the different uses, shapes, and typical decorations of Ancient Greek pots,  students designed their own and subsequently reproduced them in clay. In addition, they also created tiles, which were decorated with their names written in the Ancient Greek alphabet.

First they used the Potter’s Wheel to make their vase.


Next they carefully added handles and decoration.


The following day they painted the vase.


Year 5 can’t wait until the New Year when, after being fired in a Kiln, their finished vases will return to school.

Watch this space for photographs of the finished vases!
