The focus for this half term's ART is CLAY. We began our unit of work with a local history lesson about how the digging of clay to make bricks helped to form the Campion Hills as we know them today. We explored old pictures of the Leamington and Lillington brick factories and old OS maps showed us where they where located. We checked to see if any of us lived in today's roads and streets that once were home to one of these factories or kilns. We even got to hold a L&L Brickwork Ltd brick - it was VERY heavy ! We then watched a clip showing how bricks are made today. Each of our following sessions will focus on a clay skill - rolling, cutting, making shapes, joining, pinch pots and coil pots.
