Whimsical Clay Christmas Trees on Fun Monday

funmonday_10

It is always fascinating to watch the approach English Class pupils have when they are engaged in a Fun Monday project. The pupils are from different classes and are of different ages spending two hours together working on common goals. This week pupils created clay Christmas trees using the coiled clay building technique.

Our first and second graders were natural talents at making their trees.  It was impossible to differentiate between their completed Christmas trees and the trees of any of the older pupils. Their craftsmanship was amazing!

Now the trees need to air dry before being fired in the school’s ceramic oven. The trees will be ready in good time for Christmas.
