Year 4 Roman Catapults

This week, Year 4 have been learning about the history of the catapult and have made their own version of Roman style catapults.

They used their measuring skills to measure the wood accurately, then used junior hacksaws to cut the wood to the correct lengths. Next, they used hot glue guns to join all of their pieces together, complete with elastic bands to create the tension.

Each class then had an opportunity to try out their catapults against mini figurines. A great time was had by all!

We are so proud of all the teamwork and grit and determination that was shown throughout the week.
