Who would have believed that a Year 4/5 class would be able to make such original, creative and diverse Greek urns as these? Well done! Once we had learned what these urns were used for (any kind of carrying and storage, basically), we then set about learning, firstly, the pinch pot technique and secondly, the coil technique. We could see how the coil technique took a lot longer and was fiddlier, but it made our pots so much more rigid. We had some great shaping from all of you – and some of you even added handles to your urns. We then used imagery from genuine Greek urns to find out more about everyday life in Greece, learning about issues as diverse as Slavery, the Role of Women and Leisure and Pleasure in Greek Society. We realised what a sophisticated society the Greek people were.
