Design & Technology

We have started to build a Roman onager or catapult.  On Friday 19th November 21 we had to measure the wood into different lengths and cut it using a saw.

Completing our catapults 14.12.21

We have worked hard to complete our catapults.  We had to measure and cut some dowel and use a glue gun to secure it to our frame.  We then used drawing pins to attach the bottle top and the elastic bands.

We tested our catapults outside on the playground. It was too wet to put them on the floor, so we held them instead.

Stone Age Tunics Friday 8th April 2022

 

Class 3 have designed and made their Stone Age tunics.  They selected the animal material they wanted to make they tunic out of and have sewn it onto the tunic.  To challenge and extend their learning they could sew two pieces and / or paint cave painting designs on the back.  The children have worked so hard on them.  They look great!
