We were very proud to attend Teesside University for the Primary Engineer Leaders Awards last week, where three of our Year 6 pupils were honoured for their amazing work.

  • Gil Andrew has won first prize for his project ‘The Energy Bike.’
  • Naman Patel has been highly commended for ‘Upsoles’, his electricity producing insoles.
  • Ali Almazedi has been shortlisted for ‘Bend’, a tool to help pick things up.

The competition is a ‘creative, problem solving, literacy and entrepreneurial project.’ Pupils were asked to interview an engineer and research engineering in general, before coming up with a solution to an every day problem.

Congratulations to all of our Year 6 pupils, who worked so hard. And a huge thank you to engineer Dr Ruth Graham, of York University, who mentored everyone so wonderfully.
