As part of our Primary and Secondary school liaison programme, Little Bowden School have been developing links with Welland Park Academy. Groups of children from Year 5 have attended two pottery workshops with Mrs McCathie and created some beautiful animal tiles based upon Australian aboriginal designs. The children used different tools to create patterns on their animal tile and then decorated these using coloured slip. The tiles have now been fired and will be displayed at Little Bowden School for the whole school to admire.
The Year 3 children have also been on several pottery workshops creating rainforest animals and pinch pots. A big thank you to the Art teachers at WPA Mrs Stewart Nash and Mrs Bale who are supporting this liaison as all the children involved have thoroughly loved the pottery sessions.
