In D&T lessons this term, the children have been exploring objects with a lever and pivot mechanism. Firstly, the children drew and labelled objects that have these mechanisms. To link this learning to our current topic, Ancient Egypt, the children began planning and designing how they would create a 'shaduf'. Next, they made their shaduf by selecting from a range of tools for cutting, shaping, joining and finishing. Mrs Edwards and the children are, quite rightly, very proud of their projects. In the next lesson they will evaluate the whole process.
