Year 5 have been learning about pulleys and levers and how they have helped people for thousands of years - plus their uses today. They created their own powerful catapults to learn about how the position of the fulcrum can affect the trajectory of the catapult. The class thoroughly enjoyed creating these and seeing how far they could fire mini marshmallows across the room! The lesson culminated in the children writing a set of instructions about how to make a catapult - good fun was had by all!
