Daily task - 19/5/20

Good morning! Today’s task will require you to make something………

Can you remember why William the Conqueror decided to build castles in England? It was to protect him from any enemies which might have attacked. As castles started to be built from stone, the builders added lots of defensive features to make their castles difficult to attack. Your task today is to make something that soldiers would have used to try and attack a castle. How could they get through great stone walls? Can you think of a weapon they might have used to try and knock down the castle walls? You guessed it – a catapult! I'd like you to make a catapult (it's simple I promise). Watch the video to find out more and then click the link below for instructions on how to build a catapult. Have fun!
