Our Year 6’s love the WEDO robotics kits., some learners had done the build but needed more time to code. I was rapt at clean up time to see them gravitate to the ‘LEGO wall’ without me even suggesting it. The ‘wall evolved’ from originally going to be on a flip top table to ending up being glued onto corflute and just hooks up onto the wall so can be placed on the table, floor, deck or wherever. Our decks shade sail is currently being made and will mean we can double the number of learners which will be great as we are turning kids away. The collaboration and conversations taking place during these sessions, not to mention the problem solving, is well worth the minimal setup.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
