In the run up to the forthcoming #LeighInnovate19 inter Trust competition, year 4 pupils at Langley Park Primary Academy benefitted from an inventing workshop from Weald Technology.

Within a set of mini tasks, students used their imagination and creativity to consider solving problems as well as looking at innovative designs from nature.

The #LeighInnovate19 final will take place at Strood Academy in December with all Primary academies sending teams to compete. The focus is upon sustainability and encouraging students to use imagination and creativity to adapt existing objects so that they can be reused rather than being resigned to landfill.
