Team work in P4

P4 have been learning the gory details about death and the afterlife in Ancient Egypt.

The children worked in small teams to design and build a tomb, complete with sarcophagus, mummies, items needed for the afterlife and any added extras to make their creation stand out (one group even added a scorpion for effect!).

They then presented their work to the class. Some chose to build large pyramids while others built more modest tombs. It was interesting imagining who could have occupied these tombs, maybe a powerful pharaoh or maybe a more modest architect or engineer…

Everyone worked well together and had a great time designing and building their work.
