Year 4 is having a STEM term. STEM is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. For DT this term we have been busy thinking about police lights and how we can build and program police lights using Crumble circuits.
In computing we have been building and programming Lego robots. So far we have built a robot that pulls and we will also build a frog that will hop around. We might even get a chance to build a gorilla that waddles around. Pupils build using instructions from Lego Wedo software and then program them using block based programming by connecting to their robots via Bluetooth.
