D&T: Making a Roman Ballista

The children in Osprey class had a great day today.  Not only was it Christmas jumper Day, but they had fun creating a Roman ballista, a powerful catapult used by the Roman army.  Working in pairs, they exercised their skills of teamwork, measuring, sawing, glue-gunning, hand-drilling and following a set of instructions independently. The Y4s got to test theirs today and the Y5s will test theirs on Friday with Owl and Kestrel classes – the competition is on!

Have a look at them so far…
