Jewellery making

A group of Y5 children had an opportunity to make jewellery cast from pewter.  The started by making models of the jewellery from a special wax.  Next the models were encased in plaster of paris to make the moulds.  With the help of Wales High School, D & T department,  who melted the wax from the moulds, melting the pewter and pouring it into the moulds while the children watched from a safe distance.  The children would like to thanks Gary Drabble for providing the opportunity and materials for the children to make the jewellery and Wales High School  D & T department for helping cast the jewellery.
