Year 6 Racing Day – Runners up for portfolio

Earlier in the year teams from Year 6 entered the Advanced Propulsion Centre’s Greenpower Competition.

They had to create designs to answer the question “How do you think we will travel in 2050?”  They all had brilliant ideas.

We were delighted to find out that one of our teams won the competition.  The prize was a Greenpower electric car kit. The children have been working hard with engineers from Warwick University to construct their car and last week they had the opportunity to race their car in the Greenpower school championships in Staffordshire.

Our team called themselves The Dark Knights and had to prepare a portfolio for their big race. We were really pleased that The Dark Knights were runners up for their amazing portfolio!

Howes are Catch the Robots Bug competition winners!

We are thrilled to find out that we are the overall winners of the 1851 Royal Commission’s Catch the Robots Bug competition, which was organised in partnership with the Big Ideas Company.

The judges were enormously impressed by the enthusiasm and excellent standard of work produced by every school which made it an incredibly difficult competition to judge.  They said that Howes Primary School’s entries were outstanding and they very much enjoyed viewing them.

Our Year 6 children loved this competition and were really inspired.  They impressed us with their creativity.  They truly caught the robots bug!

The team at Big Ideas Company will be arranging our prize.

Howes are County PE and Sport Premium Award winners for deaf tennis!

We are delighted to have been successful in the Physical Activity and Health Enhancing Initiatives in the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Primary PE and School Sport Awards for our deaf tennis club.

David Moorcroft OBE, Chair of Coventry Sports Network, presented the award to members of the tennis club in a school assembly on 22 June.   Our school will now go on to the regional PE awards.

At the presentation of the award, he said: “This is a fantastic achievement by the school and all the children that took part in the deaf tennis club, not only the children that participated, but also the children who became sports leaders and helped to run the club. It’s wonderful that through this club the children developed a love of tennis and more and more children are being introduced to sport, gaining a lifelong love of being active.”
