Clay Whistles on Fun Monday

funmonday_3

Today the well-deserving pupils who were selected to participate in Fun Monday were able to create imaginary creature whistles from clay. The process was a bit tricky because a hollow clay ball had to be created from a pinch pot. But every single pupil present, from first grader to sixth grader, was successful in his/her endeavour!

Ms. Sylvia demonstrated and the pupils followed suit. It was heartening to watch the older pupils helping and advising the younger pupils with kindness and patience -and without being told to do so!

As you can see from the photos above, the finished products were full of character! The creatures will now air dry for a couple of weeks and then they will be fired in the school’s ceramic oven.
