History at Spring Brook Lower

This term, class 4 are looking at the design of a Shaduf in their Design Technology lessons.

A Shaduf is an ancient design to get water from the river used by ancient Egyptians.

Class 4 built one as a team, using Co-Jo equipment.

Going back even further…

In history this half term Class 6 are learning about Dinosaurs.

They have learnt who Mary Anning was, she was a very important lady who found ‘curiosities’ and these curiosities are today known as fossils.
Unfortunately, as she was a woman her work was not recognised until after she died.
They found out what a fossil is and how they are formed over 1000’s and thousands of years.


They had great fun digging for fossils.
