Reception Class Get Creative With Clay

Truro Pre-Prep’s Reception class have been embracing their creativity this Friday with a ceramics workshop.

The pupils had a great time making simple clay cups to form Diva Lamps in preparation for their upcoming Diwali day.

The workshop was led by a student Leo’s Grandmother, Jean, who is a lecturer of Ceramics. Jean helped the children to create the simple cups before taking them to be fired. The pupils will then be able to paint and decorate their creations, ready to be used next week.

Reception teacher, Natasha Mikhail-Jones, said that by learning about Diwali the children are:

 

“Engaging and celebrating other cultures to have a greater understanding of other people’s beliefs and gain a greater respect for them”.
