DT has been linked with our Viking topic from this term and we researched Viking long boats and the design and colours of sails they used.  We made our sails and then created simple pulley systems to raise the lower the sails off the ground.

We had previously looked at how pulleys can be used to make moving heavy loads more easily, requiring less effort and input to move the load.  Whilst our sails may not have had the weight of the huge ones on Viking long boats, the children worked out how to create a system with two wheels and two axels that would raise their sail with ease!
