Our Computing Journey

Miss Coyne's Lego Club 

Miss Coyne has been running a lego club, with some very keen coders.   The aim has been to build a robot and then using LEGO Spike Prime to code the robot in order to interact with various models and gain points for the tournament.  We have had a number of boys and girls, from both  Year 5 and 6 participating, it has been a great experience to get everyone together and work as a team. 


Entering against a number of other schools within Bristol in January 2022 and we came third!   Only 10 points in it between us and first place.  What an achievement for our first ever lego tournament!


The children have thoroughly enjoyed coding the robot, we have had so much fun and we have all really enjoyed this experience.


Miss Coyne has been super excited to be able to enter this competition again in 2023. Her team have been working really hard since October and finally took part in the tournament in March 2023.  We won a trophy being the team that made the most progress over the course of the day!  We got 105 points and came 7th.
