Year 5 Clay Modelling

Linking to our History topic based on ‘The Maya,’ the children designed a Mayan mask. They learned that the masks were used for different reasons and had to decide if it would be a death mask, a mask for a special occasion or a mask used in battle. They had to think about: what colours they would use? How they would make it fit the purpose it is being worn for? What materials they would need? At the end they evaluated their finished mask, commenting on what went well and what did not go so well. They all did an amazing job!
