During this term we will be studying the Ancient Egytpians and how the pyramids were built in History. While in Science we be learning about some of the properties of light and exploring how this would work within a tomb. The children will also be designing their own Eqyptian God using Eygptian techniques.

In Science we were given this challenge:-

 

Tutankhamun is in his pyramid, he needs a device that can help him see out of a small hole in the top. What can you make using only mirrors, card and wooden sticks?

 

Take a look at what we came up with!
