Leaders Award

Congratulations to the Year 5s who recently passed the Primary Engineering Leaders Award, where two pupils' designs were chosen to be displayed in the Discovery Museum.

Engineering is all around us, from the cars we drive to the TV screens we watch and the food we eat, it is what makes our lives livable. This forms the basis of discussion, creativity and problem solving for the question “how can we make life better for ourselves and others?

Earlier this term, our Year 5 pupils entered the Primary Engineer Leaders Award, to see if they could help with this big question. As part of the project, our pupils interviewed Staff Sergeant Phil Cooper, a Royal Engineer with REME regiment, to discover how he supports the British Army. As per the task, our brilliant pupils identified a problem and produced a solution to better the lives of our troops in the army. They then explained why it should be manufactured by engineers.

We were absolutely delighted to discover that all our pupils passed the award, with special mentions to Katie Jones, Joshua Page and Lara Campbell who all received distinctions. In addition, Katie and Joshua’s designs have been shortlisted and will be on display at the Discovery Museum public exhibition on 25 May.
