Primary pupils show their drive at W5 event

Larne Grammar School was delighted to host Primary 6 pupils from Olderfleet PS, Moyle PS, St. MacNissi's PS, Corran IPS and Larne & Inver PS for their annual Numeracy based event.

Numeracy Coordinators from the a range of primary and post primary schools in the Larne area have met this year to discuss how to manage the transition from Primary to Post Primary Mathematics as part of the Education Authority's Cross Phase Partnership Plan.

The highlight of this plan, however, is the opportunity for pupils from the primary schools to come in to Larne Grammar School to take part in a Numeracy based event.

This year's event took on a STEM focus as Mattie and James from W5 challenging them with one of their workshops, Technology Trials.

Using K’nex the pupils were challenged to work in teams to design and construct a racing buggy. After a quick test and improvement session they then had a race to find out who had built the ultimate machine.

The designs varied greatly with pupils choosing to construct their cars in a variety of shapes and sizes with some achieving quite remarkable results.

Mr Lambe, Numeracy Coordinator from Larne Grammar School, said: "It's wonderful to be able to bring so many young people together to engage in a STEM event. It was even better to see how enthusiastic they were to take part. I hope that this event can play a small part in increasing STEM engagement in the future among these pupils"
