Working with clay provides young children with a wide range of
experiences - tactile, creative, educational and pleasurable. The
responsibility for ensuring that children get the most out of their
work rests with the teacher. However, the teacher does not always have
the necessary knowledge or experience to use clay to advantage. In this
book, Peter Clough discusses the basics necessary for successfully
working with clay in scholl. He covers the types of clays, storage,
building techniques and firing - with and without a kiln. He also
points out how the use the clay can be related to various curriculum
topics. To show what can be achieved, the book is illustrated with
examples of the work of primary school children.
