You are here Our Science & Maths Work LEGO Workshops

All our pupils from Second to Sixth Class experienced workshops with LEGO.  Fourth class pupils worked with machines and mechanisms exploring how forces can affect motion. The pupils built complex mechanisms and used them to make accurate observations, measurements and records. Fifth and Sixth class pupils undertook the Mindstorms workshops. Combining LEGO building with software they designed, built, programmed and controlled robots to move around the room with the use of sensors. Second class pupils built a motorised spinning top, using sensors to control the motor and learned how gearing can increase and decrease speed.
