Since 2011 Mrs Thompson has organised and run an engineering club for 12 children in Years 5&6. The club members build two electric kit-cars to be raced at the annual ' Greenpower Grand Prix ' held at RAF St Mawgan in the summer term. There are usually in excess of 70 teams at this event with pupils representing schools countrywide. We are proud to be one of only two Plymouth Primary schools who take part and to have won trophies. The children learn patience, discipline and teamwork and we hope it may inspire the children with an interest in engineering.
