Ready... aim...FIRE!

Terrific Trebuchets!

Just before half-term, year 3 were set the challenge of creating a catapult using lolly sticks, elastic bands and lots of creativity and critical thinking. Each class spent some time learning how to make a simple model, investigating how they worked and modifying their designs in order to create the 'ultimate firing machine'. When they were completed, we had an awesome competition in the school hall to determine which team had created the catapult which could fire a projectile the furthest. Well done to our year group winners; Myles, Eva and Tilly, and to everyone for creating an amazing product. Have a look at some of our incredible work below:
