On Monday our P6 roboteers (Adam, Shree and Fabio, with support from Mr Bennett and Kunal) took their place in the grand final of the Edinburgh schools robotics and coding competition – “Marty’s Coding Party”.
They won the technical achievement prize, bringing home a second Marty coding robot for the school and were the only primary in Edinburgh to gain an award in the contest, which was open to all primaries and secondaries.
Our award was given for coding quality and cleverness in engineering a new sensor system.
Here are our team being given their prize by the CEO of Robotical.
P4 asked to share their learning with the school, they were enthusiastic about their topic and learnt a lot of interesting facts and they wanted to inspire others to learn about the Egyptians also. They decided to create a museum and used their visit to the museum to help plan every aspect of the day themselves. I was very impressed about their careful consideration as to how to encourage people to explore the exhibits as well as have fun while learning.
It was a very successful day and we would like to thank all the classes and parents/carers who visited on the day. To celebrate the end of the topic the pupils wrapped some volunteers up as mummies!
