Shadufs!

5 October 2015Latest News Year 3

A shaduf was an irrigation tool used in Ancient Egypt to lift water out of the River Nile. We took a short trip to the woods to collect some twigs and used these with some clay and string to build our own shadufs.

I wonder which of these shadufs would be successful in lifting and holding water if we tested them!
