WILLOW LAUNCHES INTO LEARNING!

WoW! How have we come to the end of a half term already! We have squeezed so much learning in! They do say that time flies when you are having fun!

 

WoW! How have we come to the end of a half term already! We have squeezed so much learning in! They do say that time flies when you are having fun!

One of our most memorable sessions was designing, creating, improving and testing out catapults. We linked this to our history topic of the medieval period and looked at te development of catapults throughout time. We had a whole array of types of catapults which were tested. All of the children were successful in their launches and were able to identify strategies to improve their creations so they could fire further. We had a mixture of improvement plans! From more flexible materials to stronger stability – it is great to see the reflections to improve come into our learning.  

Wishing you all a restful but fun filled half-term break.
