With the weather so amazing recently, Y5 took a stroll into the woods this morning to create our very own Egyptian shadufs.
Shadufs were a way of collecting water from the Nile up the banks to the farmland, and they had a variety of structures. We went down to the local stream, and created our own shadufs by the bank using only natural resources (and some string from the classroom!). In teams, a structure was made, and counter balances were also added by using appropriate sized rocks. Check out the incredible finished shadufs!
