Year 5 at a Barclay’s robotics event

Year 5 were invited to a robotics event in the Barclays office in Canary Wharf today. They worked collaboratively in pairs to program a robot using code.

Their final challenge was to design a code which would mean that the robot followed a black line as quickly as possible. There were heats and a very competitive final! Well done to everyone who took part so enthusiastically. Thanks to all our parent volunteers who made the trip possible. Thanks also to Tyra’s mum who organised the event for us – it was a brilliant opportunity for the children to get into a work environment.
