Green Power Trust Goblin Car
At New York Primary, we have received funding to develop a Greenpower Trust Goblin Car. Our aim is to inspire young engineers and this project, aimed at Year 5, aims to do exactly that. The Year 5 team are working together to design and build a Goblin Car that will be raced at the Gateshead Stadium.
The children are learning how to use tools and equipment in a safe environment, how to read instruction manuals and are having to design things such as the design of the car and the name. This huge project is taking place in a STEM after-school club as well as during PLZ times.
Keep a look out at the annual STEM fair for the car design!

Our Science Principles
At New York Primary School, we strongly believe in the importance of teaching Science in different ways. Staff asked pupils what they most enjoy about their Science lessons and from this, we wrote our Science Principles. These are displayed in classrooms and staff ensure that they meet this criteria in their science planning.
