Ten Year 5 children had a great day on Thursday as they competed in the Lego League Challenge at Gateshead College Skills Academy in Sunderland. The Year 5 children have been attending lego club this year where they have been working together to complete several tasks. The children came up with an innovation project where they identified a problem in the local community and found a solution for this problem. They created a presentation about this and presented it to the Lego League judges. They also built and programmed a bot to complete missions which they had the chance to showcase on the day. The children were competing against 26 other teams with children’s ages ranging from 9 to 16 years old. The children did fantastically and worked really well as a team all day. So much so, they were given the judges award after they demonstrated their teamwork and empathy to console a team member. Please check the class blogs/facebook for photos and a video.
