Getting Crafty at Al Jasra
Year 4 consolidated their learning about Bahraini arts and crafts when they took a trip to the Al Jasra Handicrafts Centre. The crafts people at Al Jasra were extremely welcoming and informative, allowing the students to ask plenty of questions. The children and teachers were able to watch pottery demonstrations, model dhows being built as a well as seeing how traditional fabric weaving is done.
Many of the children in Year 4 have attempted crafts themselves, such as making studded boxes and weaving. They were fascinated to see these activities being carried out by the experts. Many children from 4E were able to translate what some of the crafts people were saying.
Mrs McGuinness was delighted to finally get to visit the craft centre and said it was the highlight of Year 4 so far!
