SHIRESTONE ACADEMY UPDATE...
WELL DONE TO OUR YEAR 6'S FOR THEIR SATS LAST WEEK!!!
PRIMARY ENGINEER 2013
Year 2 have been
taking part in an exciting 'PRIMARY ENGINEERING 'project! Children
began the project in February, and it involved them designing and making a
shoebox car that can travel up and down a ramp. Schools had been invited to
take part in local, regional and national challenges that offer the opportunity
to bring together primary schools, children and families to celebrate the work
On Saturday 27th April 2013 two children were chosen to take part in the Primary Engineering Regional challenge at Aston Engineering Academy representing Shirestone, alongside many other primary schools in England. Both children were phenomenal as they confidently presented and spoke about their shoebox car to judges as well as other people from the field of engineering.
Well Done to both children and Thank You to parents and family who came and supported us on the day.
