This year 8F have been taking part in the 2021 Great Engineering Schools Challenge. The challenge was set up in 2013 to help encourage children to follow in the footsteps of some of our greatest engineers.
The challenge began early in the autumn term and children spent time designing and building a range of models using the Meccano sets provided by the event organisers. The pupils had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this years challenge.
On the 20th October 2021 the models were taken to the Shildon Railway Museum where they were judged by an independent selection of experts.
We are very proud of our students who won first, second and third place prizes. The whole of 8F received a special achievement trophy for their hard work. Representatives from the Great Engineering Schools Challenge came into school to present pupils with certificates, commemorative pens, wrist bands and our class special achievement trophy on 21st October 2021.
Well done 8F!
