Enkaji project with Year 1

Year 1 Clay Project: Making Enkaji
The Enkaji were arranged in a Manyata style enclosure

I went in to a year one class at end of last half term, to make Enkaji: Maasai Houses. Each child made an Enkaji and at the end we put them together as a Manyata. Really enjoyed it. Hopefully many more such projects to come.

One open form, one closed form.

So I can still throw, just. 2 out of 3 attempts remained standing. And I was pretty slow…. but I have at least got going. One closed form, one open form. I shall have to practice…..
