Building a Fairground

This half term Swan Class were lucky enough to have three sessions at Eastpoint Academy in Lowestoft using the Lego computer programming software, Lego Wedo.  In the first session the children used a set of instructions to create either a Ferris Wheel or carousel that they could then program to move.  The second session challenged the children to then create their own moving Lego creation that they added sound and instructions to.  In the final session the children had a choice of either participating in a challenge to create a dodgem that could move the furthest when rolled down a ramp, or, they could use a more advanced software to program a car to move around the track.  Back at school, the children then used this knowledge to create their own carousel powered by an electric circuit.
