Austen and Pankhurst Classes have spent the last term working on some moving vehicle projects linked to Canterbury University. The children had two problems to solve:-
- create a moving vehicle that will carry a cuddly toy down a ramp in a straight line safely
- use a motor to create a vehicle that will travel up a steep slope
We tested all the vehicles and chose the best to take with us to Canterbury for testing. Eight children represented East Borough brilliantly in the competition. They had to discuss their vehicles with the professional engineers and then demonstrate how well they moved.
We held a meeting for children and parents on Wednesday 14th June 2017 to provide information on the year 6 residential trip in October 2018. For those that were unable to attend please click on the following links to view the presentation and the information letter.
