Top Tips to Speed Up the Eco Car

Mayville’s Eco Car team has been to Portsmouth University to get some top tips on how to make their Eco Car a better faster machine. Portsmouth University’s “Formula Student” team builds its own racing car to take part in Europe’s biggest Motorsport events. Engineering students throughout the university take part in the project. Mayville students had a wonderful time looking at the facilities and looked at way they could improve Mayville’s Eco Car.

Mothers Day

It was a chance for Mums and Grandmothers to come into L1 boys and girls classes to celebrate Mother’s Day at Mayville. There were drinks and biscuits and a chance to do crafts. The real test was for pupils to look at pictures of all of the mums as children and see if they could match them to who they are today. It was a wonderful day.

Waste Week and the Great Big School Clean

Mayville's Head of Science Mrs Jones led pupils as they took part in the Great Big School Clean #GBS . Following on from the success of last year’s national event pupils were called on to stand together with others from around the country declaring a war against litter. Pupils analysed the litter looking especially for crisp packets and all data was submitted so a national survey can be published. Waste Week continues this week where the battle against waste, particularly plastic continues.

The Importance of Having a Voice

The importance of having a voice is the theme of Mayville’s PHSE Day. On a visit to Mayville, Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan was open, funny and honest opening the floor to questions. “Are You fed up with Brexit?” He answered “Yes If I’m honest, most people want to talk about other things.” “Do you find being in Parliament intimidating?” He said that it could be intimidating. He added “The Speaker is quite a character he can shut you down and tease you a bit.” He also said “I had to learn very quickly.” When asked what the biggest political crisis was he answered, “Climate Change.” Does he support student strikes as a call to action? Yes he does. He also mentioned Mayville supporting the Eco Bricks Project, and listened as he was told how Mayville is an Eco School and how today thanks to our Eco Warrior Head of Science Kate Jones, the school took part in the Great Big School Clean and how as a school we are working hard to reduce the use of plastic. Well done everyone for asking such brilliant questions.
