Cookie Cutter Shapes

When EH had his birthday he brought in some lovely brownies for the children in the class.
Children in K3G noticed various things about the icing shapes. 

Then they looked at just four of them, and thought about which one doesn't belong:
EH's mum very kindly lent us the cookie cutters they'd used for making the shapes:
and said it would be OK if we used them with clay. So we rolled out clay.
(We used the wood to make sure the height of the clay was the same all over.)
We left it to dry for a little.
Then we though about how best to cut out the shapes:
And we got to cutting:
Next, we'll be heating the clay up really hot in the kiln at school. And if that works, we'll be painting them with glaze.

Watch this space!
