Shaduf engineeners in Cherry class!

Year 3 had an exciting day today making Shadufs!

Their design brief:

To design a mechanism to efficiently retrieve water from the Nile so farmers could water their crops.

 They spent the day, sawing, measuring, drilling and constructing their Shadufs! Once finished, the children put their Shadufs to the test… some worked; some have some improvements to make.

At the end of the day, the children evaluated their designs.

Year 3 ensure their social cog was moving. They worked beautifully well together, showing great teamwork.
