Thursday 17th March
Today five year 5 pupils were one of six teams from local schools invited to University Technical College (UTC) for the day to participate in an exciting STEM competition. On arrival, the children were given a strict criteria to follow as the task, which was to design an educational toy to sell at market. As part of this, they had to seriously consider the suitability of materials, price of production and their marketing strategies. Posters, leaflets and detailed technical drawings were required and the day ended with presentations from each team, delivered to three judges, Dragon’s Den style! Our pupils behaved impeccably, worked extremely hard, produced some fantastic work and did the school proud!
