Well done to the Pet Chef team from Peckover Primary whose great idea scooped the best stall award in this year’s Trust Primary Believe Big competition.

Three teams from our school took part in the competition, where they battled it out to see which of the 15 Trust teams had the most innovative idea.

Many of the teams came up with philanthropic ideas to help the homeless, the vulnerable or the environment. Here’s what our teams invented:

Enrika, Amy, Tegan developed PetChef, an automatic pet feeder. They said: ‘Most people don’t have enough time to feed their pets so you put in enough food and it automatically fills the bowl when it is empty.’

 Football Go was the brainchild of Augusta, Issy and Lily. It is a virtual reality ball game that can be played using interactive goggles. Lily said: ‘I love doing football club so it is a great game.’ Lily: ‘I am really sporty so I would play this.’ Augusta said: ‘You could get it on an app and use the game with any sport that uses a ball.’

 Boost Boards.com was the invention of Edvard, Rhys and Urte. Edvard said: ‘It is a skateboard powered by wifi, so it can help the environment. We came up with the idea so that you can have as much fun as possible!’

David James, Lead Facilitator from 7 Billion Ideas led the finals: He said: ‘The children have got so much out of it already. These are children who are creating ideas, seeing those ideas recognised. What we hope now is that they take their ideas and thought processes back into the schools and encourage other children to do it as well. I am hoping to see a lot of these children in the secondary competition in four or five years. What is important is that it is a whole school process. Everyone in that school has developed ideas for the Believe Big project.’

The judges comprised Leyton Smith, BWT’s Primary Executive Principal, Corby Business Academy’s Principal Simon Underwood, Angela Reynolds, Principal of Corby Technical School and Debbie Tysoe, the Trust Finance Director.

Announcing the winners Mr Smith told the students: ‘I think every one of you who has contributed to today has done amazingly well. That medal that you are wearing around your necks says that you have put in a huge effort. I honestly don’t know where you get your ideas from. They are unbelievable. The creativity that you show, the posters you have designed and the way you have presented yourselves today has been really impressive. The judges found it incredibly difficult to decide on the results.’
