Greenpower Education (STEM project)

Since 2008 Egloskerry Primary have been keen supporters of Greenpower and their 'Goblin' project. It provides an opportunity for Y5/6 pupils (and 9-11) to take part in a sequence of learning linked to engineering, STEM and a fully cross-curricular experience. Cornwall primaries are fully behind the project and this is shown by the huge uptake at our regional event in June at Newquay airport - one of the biggest events Greenpower run.

The goblin is a battery powered kit car that pupils design, build and race. The project is used as a 'vehicle' (!) for learning and raising aspirations. More often than not, our most disadvantaged and/or vulnerable/SEN pupils flourish when carrying out this learning; enterprising learning in action.

Moreover, Greenpower's 'F24' project which covers KS3 and F24+ for KS4 - is an excellent transitional model for legacy learning, and career development.

At Egloskerry we opt for the approach to fully embed this into the curriculum. Children not only develop, apply and master (breadth and depth) the key skills of numeracy, literacy, technology and science (STEM link) they also develop organisational, character and resilience skills; essential pre-requisites for later life. We take our 2 cars to the 'Gathering of Goblins' at Goodwood with our pupils' families.

Geographical Association

Egloskerry Primary School have close links with the Geographical Association (GA) as Mrs Kerr is a member of the GA's Early Years and Primary Phase Committee. The school benefits from this with keeping up to date with recent subject changes in geography and the wider curriculum. A recent example of this is the school's involvement in the 'Critical Thinking' project and how this can be developed alongside the Connecting Classrooms project. In addition, Mrs Kerr regularly write journal entries for the GA (as well as other organisations) on how geography can effectively be used as a starting point of enquiry base, cross-curricular learning and exploration.
