Year 3

Potty about the Potteries

Who is the Master Potter?

This autumn term Year 3 are going ‘Potty about the Potteries’ as they are learning all about the history of the Stoke-on-Trent. The first half term will be spent digging deeper into the history of Stoke-on-Trent by looking into what put the Potteries on the map, canals, James Brindley, transport, child labour and the milestone of the Clean Air act. The second half term will be spent looking at pottery. We will be learning about the famous potters: Josiah Wedgwood, Clarice Cliff and Emma Bridgewater. We will have the opportunity to visit Middleport Pottery to see the beautiful poppies and an exciting visit to the World of Wedgwood. Towards the end of our topic we will be choosing our favourite potter and designing and making our very own pots to sell at our school Enterprise fayre. Who will be the Master Potter?
