Year 4 making DT catapults

Year 4 finished making their Ancient Greek catapults.

They spent some time last week making the essential preparations when they measured and cut all the parts (pegs, dowels and batons).

Today each group used a glue gun to stick all the parts together. They had to work well, as a group, to hold the parts in place, making sure that the hot glue stayed away from their fingers!

The results were amazing . Using a bottle top, they could place some “ammunition” in it and launch it. Some went really far.

Excellent effort year 4.

A special well done to Tyler who came and helped year 4 and then made his own catapult from start to finish.
