Emily Wadge, class teacher, said: “Our beautiful and creative DT event is an annual event that the whole school looks forward to and a unit of work that we are incredibly proud of. Our sixth grade children in their individual classes have created their own, self-made and created go-karts, which they raced against each other. The cars were designed, named and built by the children. At the same time, the sixth graders organized stalls refreshments for their peers and the proceeds will go to the school and future events.
“We worked together to create a wonderful event for the whole school. We were marketers, creating posters and garlands to advertise each individual class brand. We were entrepreneurs, planning and fixing the cost of refreshments for the festival to make a profit for the school Finally, we’ve been engineers, building our Goblin cars in a rotation of different teams, making it a true year-round group effort and ready to run at the festival.
“Even though each of the classes were competing in a race series, as one we are a team, and after many canceled events and global disruptions, we are thrilled to be able to celebrate together again as one Chesswood family. We are immensely proud of our six years and their incredible accomplishments in making this event a resounding success.
