In Design and technology this half term, 3 White were set the challenge of designing and constructing a sarcophagus in the style of the Ancient Egyptians.
First we researched the features of an Egyptian sarcophagus and what they were used for.
What is a sarcophagus? What were the features?
We thought about suitable materials to build from, any health and safety risks and the process.
The following week, we used our plan to make our sarcophagus. For this we used, wire, wood, modroc and clay.
Once we had built our sarcophagus, we decorated them.
See our completed sarcophagi!
