Key Stage 2 were extremely lucky to take part in an afternoon workshop with Technology Tom. He taught us how to make catapults using only paper, sticks, an elastic band and a little bit of tape! After making a triangular prism base and a cylindrical paper arm, the children were left with the problem of making a mechanism to solve.

Fortunately, the children in Scarlet Class solved the problems quickly and all created successfully working catapults. To finish off a create afternoon, the children were able to test their catapults and fire them at castles!
