We've been learning about Ancient Egyptian pottery this week. The Ancient Egyptians were one of the first civilisations in the world to create pottery. We've learned about why they made their pots from clay and we've discovered some of the reasons they needed pots. We've found that pots are excellent primary sources of historical information about the Egyptians because these people recorded details of their daily lives in both pictures and hieroglyphs on many, many pots and vases.
We used a slab and clay coils along with slip and scoring to make our pots - which is the same technique as the Ancient Egyptians would have used. Have a look at the fun (and frustration) we had while making our pots!
