We have been out non stop delivering workshops since I last blogged. On Monday the 17th November I was back in Pontyclun for my third and final day at Pontyclun primary school – everyone loved Wallie and loved learning about the different things he does!
On the 19th of November we were packed up and headed to Llandovery Prep School where we met the year 6, year 5 and year 4 class who got a chance to see what Wallie can do, and also discussed different types of robots we have seen on TV and in films.
On the 20th and 21st we were in Peter Lea Primary school who really enjoyed navigating Wallie through the maze and got a chance to see what it’s like to program a robot! The school are really lucky to have their own kits and hopefully Wallie and I have inspired them to have a go for themselves!
On the 25th I was in Tondu primary school running the “How computers work” workshop, everyone got a chance to see what it looked like inside a computer as they tried to figure out how the different pieces of hardware link together!
On the 26th we were travelled out to Cadoxton primary school in Barry to meet the year 5 and 6 classes and the year 4 class even had a quick peep at Wallie and how he detects colours.
On the 27th and 28th we did a marathon day at Glyncollen Primary School, one day of robotics and one day of “how computers work”. over two days they got the chance to see two very different aspects of Computer Science.
Today, the 2nd December I have been out to Penclawdd primary in Swansea who were able to see what it looks like inside a computer and were surprised how easy it was, as soon as they knew how!
We are now fully booked until the end of December and are unable to take any more bookings at the present time. However, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how Playground Computing can help introduce computing into your classroom.
