In the spring term this year, year 5/6 children worked with local engineers and entered a regional competition as part of their science and English work. Their task was to design an invention that would solve a local or global issue and to write a letter of persuasion to the judges to explain why their invention deserved to win. I am extremely pleased to announce that Chloe B (class 11) was chosen as one of nine winners of the competition and was invited to a special awards ceremony to collect a trophy to celebrate her achievement. In addition to this, Sophie H (class 10) was chosen to have her work displayed in a public engineering exhibition at Southampton University. Over 5,000 primary aged children from across the south of England applied so this is a fantastic achievement. Both girls’ work will now move to an exhibition at Winchester Science Museum.
