Drapers' Maylands Primary School

Well done to everyone at Drapers’ Maylands Primary School!

Children were delighted to be announced as runners-up of an engineering competition with Ford.

A team of Year 2 pupils from Drapers’ Maylands Primary School, Settle Road, Harold Hill, worked through the Primary Engineering programme, a national scheme that works with schools across the country to inspire children to pursue careers in science and engineering.

The team worked with an artist at the school to build their own car, using real tools and equipment.

They considered car safety, ainstalling seat belts in their models, and stylised their vehicles.

At the competition held at Ford Dunton, the children presented their work to the judges and were presented with second place trophy.

Teacher Miss Vingoe said: “It was also wonderful to receive the feedback from judges that our children had been articulate in explaining the engineering, science and technology of their project.”
