The Yr 4.1 students created their own LEGO fans which had to be programmed using Lego Wedo. This session was organised by the class teacher, Ms Angelique Attard with the support of the Digital Literacy Teacher.With the help of the Digital Literacy Support teacher Ms Laura Schembri, the children built a duck by using 6 pieces of Lego for their first activity.
In the second activity the children were divided into groups and together they had to build their own fan by using the Lego WeDo kit. After building the fan they then generated code causing the fan to work.
Recently, all state schools have been equipped with a number of resources to enhance innovation and creativity. Among these resources schools were given story starter packs. We all love playing with LEGO, so what better way than to start a creative writing session by creating your own scene using various characters in a set up created by using your imagination and LEGO blocks.
The year 4.2 students had their first attempt… Not only did they create wonderful scenes, but this activity triggered their imagination, which led to a different approach to creative writing… Students prepared their plans and finally set down to write their own stories.
The students had the opportunity to build their own Lego robots. The robots were connected to a laptop and they had to be programmed to do particular movements.
With the help of this workshop the students had the opportunity to work in pairs or in groups, build their own robots by following a set of instructions and then work out a programme using the LEGO WEDO software.
One can tell from happy faces of the students that this was a very interesting workshop, where students had the opportunity to learn by doing.
Special thanks to the eLearning support team 🙂
