St John XXIII Catholic Primary School Inspiring Faith in our Future


Year 5 investigated how they could design a pulley system to bring tomatoes safely up and down a Nepalese mountain side in order to improve the lives of the people living in the community. They used wood, string, glue, straw and a container to create a stable and efficient pulley that could get the tomatoes from point A (the countertop) to point B (The floor) and back up again without dropping any tomatoes! Well done Year 5 for using your Science, Art and Engineering skills to help out others across the globe.
