Mini Trebuchets

This term, Year 4 have been exploring how to make trebuchets for our 1066 topic.

Pupils have explored how a number of different levers and pulley works and the best ways to secure different materials together depending on their properties.

In groups, they planned and created a first model with straws, scissors and masking tape, we are looking forward to the final products which will be made using wood (cut to size using saws), glue guns and elastic bands.
