RSM’s Year 6 First Lego League Competition
This week’s celebration of the Year 6 teams’ First Lego League (FLL) achievements was the conclusion of a fantastic competition. The four teams enthusiastically built their medal, obviously made of Lego, and excitedly ‘drum rolled’ the presentation of the seven trophies!
During the competition the children have created their team’s identity and worked collaboratively to solve the numerous challenges. Each team identified a problem in how cargo is transported and devised an innovative solution. The teams then prepared and delivered an engaging presentation to share their conclusions.
The teams created algorithms and attachments for their robot, instructing it to solve the challenges on the competition table and score points.
The team’s celebrated their success, and failures, learning from both to achieve their overall goals. The children’s journey of discovery, what they learnt and achieved was the important thing – not the winning! However, as First LEGO League is sport for the mind and the competition underpinned everything they did, the following awards were presented.
