Upper Primary students of Yew Wah International School of Rizhao have been learning and exploring “Egyptians and Villages” for their Social Science class. As pottery was important to ancient Egyptians, there were people specialised in creating large quantities of pottery in each village.
To explore and practise making pottery, students visited a small pottery workshop in Rizhao. A professional teacher explained the process and technology of pottery making and demonstrated making a pot. Then the students had the opportunity to make their own pots and used their imagination to create their unique piece of pottery.
Pigments, colours, and a glossy glaze can be applied to the pottery before firing in order to produce beautiful results. After firing, the students will use the pottery to grow plants, which is related to a future Topic Class.
