Year 5: Slat Class - Mr Ward

Curiosity class have begun their Forest School journey. Dave, our forest school leader, set us the task of creating a pulley system that could carry a rocket model across. The system needed to be one-metre high and two-metres long, made from natural materials. The afternoon saw us working in teams, strengthening our communication and having fun in the process. It was a muddy, damp day but that didn’t stop us from getting the job done with some very successful pulley systems and rockets.
