During the second half of the Autumn term, Year 5 learnt all about Ancient Egypt. The children thoroughly enjoyed finding out about: Egyptian gods, the tomb of Tutankhamun and all about where Egypt is in the world.
Egyptian and Fairground DT.
We have completed two DT projects this half term. We have made a hydraulic sarcophagus using water and syringes. These allowed us to create a tomb for a mummy which raised up as if by magic! Then we had a visit by Steph O'Donnell, from Primary DT, who helped us to make a moving carousel using electrical circuits. This was very fiddly! We then visited the ICT suite with Mrs Truelove and created lights to go with our design using a clever device called a crumble and a program called Scratch. Here are some pictures of us in action!
