Look what is happening in Year 1!

A ‘real artist’ in Year 1!

Friday 23rd January | 23 comments

What an amazing day we have had in Year 1. Kate Park (Finlay’s Mum) taught us how to create our unique pieces of glass art work. First the children drew a design and then carefully, using tweezers, they placed the different types of glass onto their work. Can they remember what all the types looked like? Stringers, frits and confetti. Kate has taken the finished pieces home to fire in her kiln. You can watch this over the weekend on Facebook – Twice Fired. For more information look at Kate’s website – www.twicefired.co.uk

We would all like to say a big thank you to Kate – it’s been a brilliant day.

    Joseph came bouncing out of school today because he had enjoyed the glass work so much! He knew so many new facts about glass and creating glass art. It’s amazing how doing something creative and hands on leads to incredible retention of information! Fantastic work Year 1 and huge thanks to Mrs Park and the Year 1 tutors for arranging this unique opportunity.
