First Lego League success!

Moulton Chapel Primary School's Future Engineers took on the First Lego League “Hydro Dynamics” Challenge as Regional Final took place in Peterborough.

On Saturday 9 December 2017, and after 10 weeks of research, design and practice, over 100 children from 12 local primary schools gathered at the Caterpillar Business Park in Peterborough to take part in a science, engineering and robotic competition, the FIRST Lego League “Animal Allies” Challenge (a worldwide competition coordinated by the Institute of Engineering Technology in the UK). More than forty Caterpillar employees have been working with their allocated school teams, as coaches to guide and help the children to design, build and programme a LEGO robot to complete as many of this year’s challenge tasks as they could in 2 ½ minutes.

The teams of 9-11 year-old pupils each had four attempts on the robot challenge competition board as well as being scored on; project work, teamwork and robot design.

This year’s “Hydro Dynamics” theme posed the teams the challenge of “how we find, transport, use, or dispose of water?”

This is the eleventh year Caterpillar has supported the First Lego League and with the help of over thirty volunteers, this year proved to be another success.

It was a fantastic, exhausting and competitive day for all, with level of competition being to a very high standard.  The overall champions of the day were the team from Moulton Chapel - the MC Wetbots, who will go on to compete against the best teams in the country at the UK National Finals in Bristol in February.

Please click here to access and print the form should you need your child to be given medicine by a member of school staff during the school day.  The form should be printed and brought to school with the medicine, ideally by an adult as it is inadvisable to send medication with an unsupervised child for safety reasons. 

07/11/2014   Charity donations

Thank you very much for supporting the Jeans for Genes day this year.  We have been able to send £58.00 to the charity to support their work.

Another thank you for your support of the Harvest Celebration at St. James's Church in October.  Food donations were very gratefully received by the Agape Centre in Spalding and the collection at the Church amounted to £46.80.  The School Council will decide which charity should benefit from this money. 

We have two more charitable events before Christmas:  Children in Need (Superheroes) and Save the Children (Christmas Jumper Day).  We encourage all children and staff to take part in these events to keep us in touch with the needs of others in the UK and around the World.  We always suggest a donation of £1.00 per child/staff member but more or less is always very gratefully received by the charities.  A few pennies from each school child in the country soon amounts to a large sum of money!

Thank you again.

You may (or may not) have noticed that over the summer the school's windows were replaced with pvcu double glazed windows.  This major investment in the school's Victorian building will greatly enhance the temperature inside school this winter - and also in the summer when it will be possible to have improved ventilation.  Our thanks to EYG Commercial of Nottingham for the excellent job done!
