History of Archery The archery board is one of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Archery dates back around 10,000 years and was first used for hunting and warfare before it was a competitive sport.Archery made it into the Olympics in Paris 1900. It was dropped from the programme after the London 1908 Games, and then returned for asingle appearance in 1920. After a 52-year gap, the sport was back in theOlympics at Munich 1972 and has remained on the Olympic programme ever since.
At our next meeting we had to find out all of the calculations and the size of anaverage can. It took a while but we found out all of the calculations. We had towork out have many cans we would need to build the archery target.In our next meeting we had to work out some of the things we would need tobuild the archery target. Then we had to find out how many of each colourcans we needed and what colour can we needed to get. The colour cans thatwe needed was, Yellow, Red, Blue, Black, White, Green, Aqua Blue and Orange.We had to get the school involved with then getting the cans for us. We had abook week and we had to come dressed up as one of your favourite bookcharacters. The next time we had to get cans we had a free dress day. We gotclass’s to bring extra cans for a prize of a container of lollies. The class thatbrought the most cans were 5/6D.When we were ready to build we had to put paper on a board. Then we sortedthe cans in the colours that we needed.We started to build on the 3rd of September. We started to build and it wasgoing really good. We spent the day building. We had lots of fun building andworked well as a team. We had 2 people cutting the sticky tape and 3 peoplebuilding, we had 1 photographer and the rest of the people were on thecomputers.
TEAM GOALS The teams goals were to achieve to work welltogether in a team. We did work well together, andwe achieved the goal of working well together. Wehad lots of fun as a group and we all helped eachother out. Are group was made up of Tiana, Callan,Nathaniel, Chloe, Brynlee, Brooklyn, Bailey, Courtney,Tiah and Harry. The people in our team got along welltogether and enjoyed working together as a group.
ROLES Builders Photographer 1 Sticky Tape Person2 builders 5 computer people1 photographer,1 person who cuts the sticky-tapeWe had two days to complete the build. We Started it Afterassembly on Monday and continued it after recess all the wayto Lunch. The roles worked well and we all got a chance tobuild and go on the computers. People on computers
MaterialsThe materials that we used in our build were sticky tape. Weused the sticky tape to hold all of the cans in place. We used aboard that the archery board was built on.Some of the materials that we could of used were:Sticky tapePly woodWire
BrainstormAt our first meeting we discussed what our team would want to build. The theme was theOlympics. Our ideas were…• Olympic Podium• Olympic Torch• Cup of tea and crumpets• Medals• The Queen’s Dog• One of the Mascots for 2012 Olympics• The Queen’s Crown• The Queen’s Crown on a Podium• Big Ben• Swimming Pool• Running Track• Archery Target• The England Flag• Olympic Podium with a cup of tea and crumpets• Olympic Podium with one of the 2012 Olympic Mascots on topWe finally chose an archery target with an arrow coming out of the side. We chose the archerydesign because we thought it would be a challenge and it would be fun to experiment withcolours and cans. Miss Dawson then helped us decide how our Canstruction Design would be setout. We decided it would look like this:
Coloured cans we neededThe different coloured cans that we needed was:Green- Odd shaped cans for the grass and 3 for the feathers onthe bow.Yellow- The inside of the targetRed- the second middle colour for the targetAqua blue- The blue colour on the targetBlack- The second outside colour on the targetWhite- The outside colour for the targetOrange- The arrowDark blue- The background colour
How we got cansWe had a book week at school and on the Friday we had adress up day. We had to dress up as one of our favourite bookcharacters. It was a gold coin donation and a can.We had a free dress day to get some more cans. The schoolcame in free dress and it was a can donation.
The Mathematics of our designTo find out how many cans we needed we had to seehow many cans went across the bottom of the board,which was 16. We then we found out how many canswent on the side which was 16. Then we multipliedthem together (256).We had to find out the average size of each can. Thesize is 200 x 308.
Building We had two days to build the archery board. First DayOn the first day we started to build. We put down the cans onthe bottom and then we built it up. We had to take a photo eachtime we placed a can. To put the cans in the right places we hadto follow the design that we had. There was three peoplebuilding and a photographer. There was someone getting thesticky tape ready, the rest of the group was on the computers.
Building Second DayOn the second day we built up from where we left it. We placedeach can and then took a photo. After a couple of photos wetaped it all together. When we getting close to the top we had tobe careful because the cans were three above the board. When Iwas all done we had to put the grass down. We played aroundwith it so we could get them in a good place. When we finishedit looked really good.
