Cardboard Boat Race

On Sunday 11th September 2016, our Mayflower Science Team of pupils, Miss Rose and Miss Bowden met to race our cardboard boat against many other schools at The Barbican. The pupils worked incredibly hard with Bruce Robinson before the summer holidays to design, create and build a boat made entirely from cardboard. Our boat racers Caitlin and Kayleigh (Y6) showed incredible determination and resilience on the day. We would like to thank Mr Warren for driving us there bright and early on a Sunday morning! Also, we would like to send a massive thank you to all of the parents and carers who turned up to cheer us on during the rainy morning! We hope you enjoy the photos.

“The pupils were incredible and showed fantastic determination!” Miss Bowden (TA)
