Year 5/6 have a D&T project this term which is to explore building bridges ! Today they have been exploring which is the best and strongest design for pillars and beams. They have diagrams of the cross sections they have to make using card and are testing the strength using weights. ( Some members of the class are looking far too happy ! )
Here are our finished pyramids! A Pharaoh would be pleased to be mummified in any of our designs!
Our specification stated that the pyramid must be 75cm tall, include a tomb, an entrance, hieroglyphics and a sarcophagus.
Some teams also included cursed treasure, booby traps, scorpions and canopic jars.
