Catapult Challenge Year 8 Team

The Humanities Club have been rewarded today by a fantastic win at Sandal Castle! Our Year 8 team of girls proved to have the most reliable, sturdy firing catapult! It was consistently firing around 6 metres or so! The girls had worked all this week staying after school to complete their designs and research. They produced some fantastic and detailed presentations and were credited by our esteemed judges for their in-depth knowledge, and team-work. Our Year 7 girls were also deserving runners up! The judges were impressed with their highly unique design (no other team had a design like theirs, either at the Pontefract or Sandal competition!) and enthusiasm!
