What a day! What an event
In our first ever Y6 YBH F1 In Schools Day, the teams took us by storm!
Their 'pit displays', their presentation skills and their technical knowledge were simply fantastic. During the day, the whole school took time out to come up to Year6 and watch the teams in action. The infants especially were 'wowed' by the speed of the cars on the track!
Mr Jim Jones, school Governor, was invited along to be a guest judge on the day, where he questioned the teams on their technical knowledge, the use of the soft and hard ware, their car design and the general design rocess. Marks were then given for each element to each team. A big thank you must go to Mr Jones, for giving up his own time to attend the event for the day.
Mrs Evans, and Mrs Donovan, judged the teams on their Pit displays, their teamwork, their knowledge of the project, the team image, marketing and sponsorship. Again marks out of 70 were given.
Each team raced their car three times and their fastest time was recorded by Mr Pickavance who was the race co-ordinator for the day. Points were again awarded for the speed of their cars.
So, during the day, there were many elements taken into consideration, before a team was crowned Champion.
The tension was building .... as the whole school filled the school hall, and Mr Cannon began the awards ceremony.
Huge congratulations go to.....

Many thanks to Mr Graham Nutt from EESW, and several of our school governors for coming along to support us on the day.
The first and second place teams have now been invited to display their work at the climax of the GB Rally which will be held at the Toyota plant in Deeside in November.
Well done to all the teams today. The hard work and dedication you have all shown over the last few weeks really did pay off for you all!
Thank you for making our first ever Y6 F1 Day such a huge success!!
