Clay Sculpting!

Today, the children in Gilliatte Room 6 had the chance to learn and develop skills in clay sculpting. We discussed the feel of the clay, the consistency of when it is wet vs. when it is not, and how to slip and score when combining different sections of a sculpture. The children were given complete freedom to experiment and create whatever they liked… and the results did not disappoint! We ended up with a daisy and daisy seeds, a butterfly, a family of snowmen, a hoard of zombies, and more!!!
