WC 11th November 2019
This week has been our design and technology week and as we are learning about history within our local area in our current Encompass topic we focused our work on bottle kilns. We researched what bottle kilns are, their shape, structure and the materials they are made from. Using this information gathered we then designed our very own bottle kilns. To help us make our own bottle kilns we were lucky enough to have the amazing Emily from Creative Flamingo deliver a workshop to us. We learned all about slabbing, coiling and pinch potting and in doing so created our very own bottle kiln and factory. The finished products were sensational.

We went on a walk around our local area to take photos of all the things we could see to help us in our learning of our Encompass topic Street Detectives. We spotted lots of things including a bottle kiln, the canal, doctors, a church, shops, Emma Bridgewater and much more.
