‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Year 4 Ancient Egyptian Shadufs

To finish off our Ancient Egyptian topic, Year 4 have been designing and making shadufs. 


The Ancient Egyptians used a shaduf to lift water from the Nile by using the large pole, a weight and a bucket balanced on the crossbeam.


Year 4 have enjoyed using their DT skills especially the saw!
