Shhh, geniuses at work.
Stay tuned next week to see the finished masterpieces!
Thursday 27th June 2019 finally arrived for Marsden Primary School Young Engineers, who built their own racing kit car , designed a bodywork and then tested the car in preparation for their big day at Gateshead Stadium racing against 39 other schools.
The team were well-prepared and looked smart in the red racing overalls.
The day was a super occasion and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Special thanks must go to Mr Payne who was our mechanic and ‘roadie’, carrying the car and the equipment to and from the venue and, to Mrs Danjoux who helped to supervise the children throughout the day. Coffees for the staff and cakes for the children were provided by Mrs Lee and these gave us all a welcome ‘sugar boost’.l done Team Marsden and the Marsden Bullet for your effort and hard work over the year and on the day.
At our after school Mandarin club the children have been learning some new language and a fab dance to match.
Take a look at the brilliant pictures.
The seven members of the Young Engineers club completed the chassis this week and are ready to check and test the electrical wiring.
The club meets each Thursday after school and have worked as a team to follow the design plan and get the car completed. Last week our Engineer Ambassador Mike Lambert who organises the regional car programme for Greenpower Goblin, came along to check the chassis and to help with the wiring.
The Young Engineers have started to build the car and have really stuck into the role of engineers. Tools at the ready, they have used the design plan to help get on with the long process of building the car.
This half term we have been very lucky to offer a Mandarin after school club, organised and delivered by Iris. The children have had lots of fun learning about Mandarin and I’m sure that you will be amazed by the children’s work.
When asked about the after school club, Autumn said that is was “very interesting” and Ellie said that it was “fun to learn a different language”.
Thank you so much for providing the children with this fantastic opportunity, Iris!
