Dear Parents/Guardians,


Welcome to Year 5/6 Curlew class. For the first half of the Autumn term, we will be investigating ‘Tomb Builders’ looking at how Ancient Egyptian people lived.

Below there is some information about Curlew class and resources you may need for this half term.

Our first few days back in school this term were spent completing a design technology project. They were asked to try and recreate the Egyptian shadoof, used for moving water and irrigating crops.
Curlew class first planned their ideas based on research. They then designed the machine, with several variations, and chose a final product. They then built their machines and tested them out.
The results were varied!
