Design Technology: Material Strength and Pyramids

As part of the ‘Ancient Egyptians’ topic, children wanted to make their own pyramids and obelisks, so that’s what we did.  First they researched the features of them and then explored material strength.  The girls and boys then used this knowledge to design their own and finally make them.  It was a great chance for the children to apply their skills from maths, science, design and technology, history and art.
