St PETER’S school Afterschool Hub had an exciting and successful weekend at the First Lego League Tournament on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February. Two groups from the school took part in the tournament, and they both did incredibly well, with their hard work paying off.
The Y1 to Y5 children had been working tirelessly since September to make their Lego models, which they presented at the FLL tournament. On the day, the children and their monitors brought their Lego models to the FLL tournament and had to represent them in front of judges. The teams explained what they had made, how they made it, and how they made some of the Lego move electrically. They also had to explain which Lego model was their favorite and why. The children spoke confidently and eloquently, impressing the judges and monitors.
The children were judged on how they presented their Lego models to the judges and how they explained how they came up with their invention. The teams went on to win several certificates: Premi Joves Promeses, A les Joves Promeses, and Als programadors. They also won a trophy for El Premi Joves Promeses and ranked in the top 10 out of 50 participants.
The First Lego League Tournament is an excellent opportunity for children to showcase their creativity and innovation. It encourages them to think outside the box, problem-solve, and work collaboratively. The St PETER’S school Afterschool Hub children demonstrated all these skills and more, making the school proud of their achievements.
Congratulations to the children, their monitors, and everyone involved in making this a memorable and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
