We have really enjoyed working with the LEGO WeDo kits this week. Working in pairs, we followed the onscreen instructions to construct the sailing boat model. Mrs W asked us to work with people who we wouldn’t normally work with and it was great to be with different people! Mrs W reminded us of the importance of following the instructions ‘to the letter’ and some of us heeded that advice whilst others didn’t… We soon found out why Mrs W had said ‘be careful’…! We discovered evidence that if any component is only slightly out of position there are major problems later on; either the model will not work or another component will not fit later in the build. We also found that we have to look very carefully to find the different components in our boxes!
We really enjoyed making the models and programming them.
