This week, year 4 have been making shadufs. Children planned, prepared materials and assembled all components to make these hand-operated water lifting devices used by the Ancient Egyptians. The children especially enjoyed using a hack saw to cut their own wood! Although faced with some challenges during the build, the children were able to persevere and create working models. After some careful reflection, children talked about what they thought went well and what they could change next time in order to enhance the quality of their builds.
