Green Goblin

St Mary's C of E Primary School has been involved in the Greenpower Goblin electric kit car for several years with many of our Year 5 and 6 pupils becoming involved in building and competing with the car.

The cars are designed specifically to offer primary school children a chance to get involved in a simple, practical engineering project that embraces many relevant aspects of science and technology in a fun and exciting way. The kit cars are (fairly!) simple to build and provide an excellent grounding in basic engineering skills. Once built, the pupils compete in organised races and events.

The children involved have formed strong teams that demonstrate their prowess, in building the cars successfully, competing with them, but also winning many trophies! There are a number of races throughout the season; Team McLymping usually participate at Portsmouth, Plumpton and Littlehampton, and the huge 'gathering of the goblins' event at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

The pupils develop driving skills, mechanical skills and work very hard and effectively as a team representing the school.

The project is run by parents and supported by a whole host of people who support the enthusiasm and commitment of the children, including teachers, Governors, parents, and local businesses who kindly sponsor us, allowing us to buy replacement parts and pay the entry fees to the various events. This year our sponsors are A. Wright Builders and Joinery Ltd, H.D. White Ltd Metal Recycling Merchants, Top Turf Irrigation, European Office products and Atlantic Auto-Bodyshop.

If you would like more information, or even better, to support the team and watch them in action at one of the events then visit our Greenpower website, created by one of the Year 6 members of the team at www.dennison5.wix.com/-greenpower
