Year 4 – clay creations!

Year 4 have been creating canopic jars. (Ancient Egyptians used canopic jars to store the internal organs that had been removed during the mummification process.) After looking at pictures of canopic jars for inspiration, we designed our own. We learnt how to use clay to make a coil pot, and then used this skill to create the bottom of our canopic jar. Next, we made an animal-topped lid for our jar. They’re looking great so far – just the painting stage to go!
