One of our 'Most Able' activities in Year 5 and 6 is the Maths in Motion club. This leads to the design of a sports car and a race simulation which, this year, took part on Le Mans track. Over 100 schools enter from around the world. This Year we have come 8th. A major achievement beating some secondary and many well known independent schools. The overall winner was only 5 seconds faster which shows how close we were.
The next phase is that 4 pupils will attend the BETT show, in London, in February, to show off their skills. The programme is run by Jaguar Cars. There will be 16 schools involved at the BETT show and the race will be screened live on You Tube on the Friday after everyone has completed their simulation tasks.
Just as an extra, the teachers came 1st overall in the Teacher's Race!!
