We’ve had such a fun afternoon! Becky from JTRS came to show us how to use LEGO WeDo! We worked really well in pairs to build a fairground swing and used the WeDo app on the iPads to write code to make our rides move. We even added coloured lights and sounds! We can’t wait to use the WeDo sets again!
