CATAPULT CRAZY!

Last week, Birch Class explored the world of Medieval weapons and how they were used in battle.

Last week, Birch Class explored the world of Medieval weapons and how they were used in battle. In groups, we then designed our own catapults, inspired by what we had learnt. Our ammunition: Maltesers!

 After that, we spent an afternoon of building, adjusting and preparing our catapults, ready to launch the Maltesers. Some flew  more successfully than others, but all in all it was great fun! We reflected on why certain designs were more or less effective and agreed what changes we would make if we were to build them again.

 

Well done Birch!
