Like an Egyptian

Thank you to Ethan Leung for this report:

On Friday morning we went to Big School to have an Egyptian workshop. We talked about pyramids and construction. Also we built our own personal pyramids out of elastic bands and wooden poles which we connected together to make a larger one.

As a year group we constructed an enormous pyramid which we filled with all J2 boys (lying down). Later we had a history quiz about why the Egyptians used pyramids and about the gods – Anubis, Osiris and Ra. Following the quiz, we built a tetrahedron and a square-based pyramid to prove that triangles are sturdier than squares. We had an awesome day! Many thanks to Mrs Wade and Mrs Winstone.
