Four members of Year 5 have had their first taste of university!

Jack, Libby, Callum and Jess went to the University of Chichester to be taught by the lecturers based on STEM with a Maths focus.

They brought this learning back to school and started tackling a project with their peers based on wind turbines. They found the project particularly challenging, however really enjoyed it.

“All of the schools did the same thing but we had different aspects of learning, so it was fun to see what other people did,” said Jess, Squirrel class.

This was the children’s second visit to the University and this time they went to present their findings.

 “It was definitely worth it…I know how much Jack has enjoyed what he’s been doing at school and I didn’t realise how much of that has come from the university,” said Jack’s Mum who came to see him present his findings.

We spent our time in the brand new technology park and had our initial session in one of the workshops.

“… the facilities there [the university] are amazing and the enthusiasm from the kids, the staff and the university lecturers was really good,” reported Jess’ Dad, who came with us to see her present her findings.

Well done to our super mathematicians who represented our school so confidently.
