Year 4 continued into their journey into the past of ancient China by exploring the tomb of the first Emperor of China and his Terracotta Army. After exploring the 8000 soldiers and near 1000 horses and chariots the children then spent some time making their own terracotta soldiers.
We began by practicing the art of manipulating clay to make smaller designs and intricate makings on a smaller piece before creating our soldier.
Once we had practice using different tools and techniques to model and manipulate the clay the children were then given a larger piece of clay which they would use to begin moulding into their terracotta soldier.
Once the children had created and added details to their soldiers they were then ready to be left to dry and become the Year 4 Terracotta Army.
