This session links to Romans, Celts and Invaders.
The children work in groups of 3 to design and build a catapult. We learn about strong structures and catapult design. We test our catapults and improve our designs.
In this session we cover the following:
Maths: We measure distance and collect data.
Statistics: Record data in a table and use the collected data.
Technical Knowledge: Apply understanding of how to strengthen and reinforce more complex structures. Understand and use mechanical systems.
Science: Predicting outcomes. Fair tests.
