Romans, Celts, Invaders: Catapult building

KS 2: Design, Technology, History, Maths, Team Work, Collaboration.

Roman, Celts and Invaders: Catapults.

This session links to Romans, Celts and Invaders.

The children work in groups of 3 to design and build a catapult. We learn about strong structures and catapult design. We test our catapults and improve our designs. 

 

In this session we cover the following:

 

Maths: We measure distance and collect data.

Statistics: Record data in a table and use the collected data.

Technical Knowledge: Apply understanding of how to strengthen and reinforce more complex structures. Understand and use mechanical systems.

Science: Predicting outcomes. Fair tests.
