J2 enjoyed an Architecture Workshop in Big School. Thank you to Ed Lewis of J2A for this account:
Ever wanted to make a vast Egyptian pyramid at school? You will need a really big hall with a high ceiling, which as boys of MCS, we are lucky enough to have! Imagine a pyramid made of wooden rods and elastic bands as tall as three adults … well, we made one. We worked in small teams to create square-based pyramids that we assembled to make the ultimate square-based pyramid. We laid still like mummies inside. We advanced to Tudor times to build a galleon, building small triangular-based pyramids and connecting them to make a spine, which was as long as the hall. A combination of curved and straight sticks were then attached to form the hull. What a fun day!
