International School Ikast-Brande
15th November 2021: Lego Builders!
Year 1 students are learning about algorithms and following instructions in ICT lessons. The children were set a challenge to give clear step-by-step instructions to solve a problem to their friends, in this case by building a lego model! They worked collaboratively while thinking about the precise instructions they needed to meet the objective. This computational thinking will prepare the children as they build their skills in ICT lessons as they progress at ISIB.
Recently we have been working with the Lego foundation testing their brand new systems for schools and now have two full sets of classroom robotics for our Primary and Middle years that other year groups will get the chance to use soon.
