Year 5 investigating Pulleys at Forest School

Elmhurst School for Boys

15th January 2016 | Forest School

Year 5 had their first session this week and they were introduced to the Elmhurst Forest School Code: ‘TRUST, RESPECT AND TEAMWORK’. They carefully led their blindfolded partner around an obstacle course through the Woods and then reflected on the Code.  They had opportunities to explore, build their camps and light the Kelly Kettle to make hot chocolate.

Boys spent some time investigating pulleys. They recognised that pulleys are simple mechanisms, like gears and levers, which allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

They noticed a pattern between the number of pulleys used and the force needed to lift a load. Some boys suggested where pulley systems could be used, including a door system for a forest shelter.
