Blacksmithing in Class 10
Pupils at the Holywood Steiner School have the opportunity to learn a range of crafts. One of the most challenging and rewarding is working with metal in blacksmithing. The pupils experience the effort which goes into creating an object which is both useful and aesthetically pleasing, whilst also witnessing first hand the phenomenon of heat at work and how different substances react to it. In an integrated curriculum, this practical knowledge will make the conceptual learning in Science lessons more meaningful.
