Street Detectives

W.c. 11.11.19


This week was Design and Technology week!  As we have been learning about the history of our local area as part of our topic Street Detectives, we designed and made our very own bottle kilns! We began the week by researching the shape and structure of bottle kilns, as well as the materials they are made from. We then designed our own, focusing on the main features, and thought about what materials and equipment we would need to make them. On Friday, we had a special visit from Creative Flamingo, who taught us how to make bottle kilns and pot banks using clay! We had so much fun learning new skills such as slabbing, coiling and pinch potting. The finished pieces were amazing!

We went on a walk around our local area to investigate what human features we could find. We spotted features such as bottle kilns, a shop, a doctor's surgery, the Emma Bridgewater factory, a canal, a church and different types of housing.
