The Robots are Coming….again!!!

Yep the new kits for the Y3/4 robot league have arrived and YOUR SCHOOL could be receiving one to be part of the WeDo LEGO league in the Tees Valley. How do you get one? Simple, you must send me a submission froimg_1944m your prospective robot team of pupils explaining why your school should receive a kit. Submissions must be NO MORE than a side of A4 or NO MORE than a 30second video submission. As ever, creative approaches are very much welcomed. This is a great opportunity for authentic writing for purpose.

The league will be launched on 27th September (9.30 – 2.30 lunch included) where teams will be expected to attend (one adult and up up to 3 children) to receive the kit and initial training. Fixtures will then be played on the following dates:

20th October

8th December

2nd February

6th April

(All at 1pm until 2.30pm at Inspire2Learn)

With a final celebration Challenge event on 30th June (9.30 – 2.30). There will also be a one off ‘cup match’ on 20th January 9.30 – 2.30.

A new challenge will be issued at the beginning of each half term and the fixture is the chance to apply your solution against other teams.

The kits combine building skills with a brilliant programming interface that I have used with children down to Y1 successfully….but the possibilities for the older children are endless.img_1945

To submit a bid for a kit please email:

astogdale@inspire2learn.org.uk

By Friday at 3pm. Successful teams will be notified by the end of Monday 19th.
