During PSHE this term, we have been focusing on challenges and how to show resilience and perseverance when we come across a barrier preventing us from reaching our goal.

We had the opportunity to have a STEM Robotics Workshop working with Lego. In the STEM workshop, children have been working on their engineering skills. To begin with, children took part in some activities to familiarise themselves with Lego and programming software. Their next task was to build and program a roaring lion. Children learned about gears, timers, motor power, and simple algorithms to control their models and used practical problem-solving skills to create their models. Their learning was then extended to using motion sensors within their algorithm. They then programmed the Lion with movement, sound, and backgrounds.
