Year six pupils from Golden Valley Primary School worked in teams to follow a series of instructions on a laptop to construct a robot.

The robot was then programmed to complete a number of missions on a Lego robotics challenge mat.

The theme of the missions was ocean odyssey, which links with the students’ current learning project ‘water, water everywhere’.

Pupils were delighted to see their Lego creations carry out tasks.

Julie Bennett, year six teacher at the school, said: “The children worked with great resilience all day as quite often their first attempts needed modifying and improving. There was a great sense of team work and support of each other.”

Teams were awarded points for each successful mission and staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day.
