Marshland High School's seven feeder primary schools enjoyed a morning of science activities based on the theme of 'Power Up' - a look at alternative energy sources.

Teams of Year 6 children from each of the primary schools took part in a competition to construct and test a vehicle powered by a wind-up mechanism.

Each team was joined by a past pupil from Year 7 at Marshland High.

The winning team was presented with a shield to be displayed at their school.

The event was the second annual science challenge for primary schools that Marshland High has held in conjunction with its specialist science college status.

The event also included a science quiz and other activities about renewable energy sources. The High School is also holding an exhibition of the work each primary school has done for a 'Power Up' project. 011
