News from Second Class
Lucas of Farnanes Pottery came to the school for 3 days after Easter. Each
class in the school did a workshop with her. Margaret brings all her own
equipment and sets it up in the school hall. It is a brilliant opportunity
for the children to work with clay and the potters wheel. Margaret
prepares each workshop to suit the needs of the children. They have a
chance to work on the wheel and to make a piece of pottery under
Margaretís expert guidance.

Margaret Lucas is a
potter. She came to the school to teach us how to make something out of
clay. We did a
sea bed. When we finished the sea bed we had to turn it upside down
which is called the upside down test. We thought it was excellent.
