Sharing & Reflecting on Learning

Sam who dances on the pan!

The Dr Seuss Hummingbird Challenge

What type of creature might you create?

What variables might you consider?


•        Can your creature move? How? When? How much? How fast?

•        Does it make a sound? What sound? When? For how long?

•        What does it look like? Does it change colours? When?



My initial goal is to…….

My goal is to figer out how to  light sensor and code.

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of my design:

This is the first iteration of my creature’s system:

The parts which were the most challenging were…..

The coding because we couldn’t work out how to do it.

I was able to get these working by



The second iteration of my creature’s system is to…..

I couldn’t work out how to get the gear moter to work so I checked my code and it turned out that we did the wrong code I had to change it complaly. so that was a bit annoying


Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of the additions to my design:

This is the second iteration of my creature’s system:

The parts which were the most challenging were…….

were when we had to change the whole code.



This is a short film of my learning journey throughout this project:

Mini golf

This Millie, Stella and I project we decided to do Mini golf because we all like playing it. The start has gone smoothly so far but I’m shore it will get quite hard. this is the start of our coding. my goal is to coraprate and work together and to focused and not get distracted and make every second count. next we are doing is to fix our wing                                                                                                           meal and then we will finish the coding.

This the start of our coding for the wing meal  we had to change a bit of the coding because it was going to fast so we are working on how to slow it down.

What we will need

1 cardboard

2 grass

3 glue

4 lego\eve3

5 pipe

6 tape

7 small boxes

8 train trucks

9 hot glue

10 paper

11 Lego blocks

12 golf ball

13 golf stick

we were going to glue a clown on to the pipe but we couldn’t get the clown bigger for the pipe.

We are gluing paper around the pipe so its                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    more carnival look  


This is the wing meal finished. it was challenging because it wasn’t working because we couldn’t get the right time but now we did


This is my design in my book. We are getting rid of the ramp because we realised it would be hard to get it up there on a small peace of grass so we replace it with 4 boxes and trains we go around on the boxes and the ball will need to dodge the boxes.


These videos explain what we are doing but the sticky tape didn’t quit work so we are hot gluing it.

In the second video we are going to glue the pipe down we have decided to stick little shops like ‘hit the bottle’ on the side.

This is the grass and we cut the hole so the ball can get in there.

This is the wing meal going to fast.

The wing meal is finely finished we got it a the wright time and now it wont be impossible to try and hit the ball throw


this is the coding for the wing meal  and its moving at the perfect past

we have started to put bowls in the end of the mini golf and we are going to put cones on the bowls so it can be ice cream  and we are going to build a ramp and its going to be moving we put the balls there because we needed more obstacles


this is our golf we have put candy floss and popcorn and put cones on to the bowls now we are going to stick on the ramp.

this the fishing golf course we might put something in the middle. We got foam balls and wrapped it in paper and got the cones from the shops we put the popcorn and cotton candy there because its carnival like and we needed more obstacles. we put the games there because carnivas have games.


this the clown moving and we decided to do a clown not a ramp because we thought might be a bit hard trying to hit the ball onto the ramp

this is the candy floss Stella made the box Millie  made the candy floss Millie got cotton and pink and blue paper and water ad left it over night

this is the popcorn I made the box and Stella made the paper se just scrunched up some yellow paper

this is the finished project  e did not have time to put something in the middle but were still very  happy with it we have moved the cones more to the wingmeal so you cant get a hole in one. so the ball will go throw the pipe and then throw the wing meal and into the clown. I have lernt how to work with micro bit.

robotic coannbot

Lilli , Stella and I are nearly finished all we have to do is code so ….. I think that’s going to be tricky because I’m a terrible coder so thts gonna be fun.

any whey here’s some photos of the finished robot.


me and Bobbi have been working on this project for awhile and weave had some goods and some bad days but we turned the bad days into good  right now weave had some trouble trying to get in some pins thorw cardboard and so we thought of a nother idea to right on the card bored




Lego robotics catapult

hi this is stella , lilli’s and i’s project the catapult heres some of the photos we took.






Here’s some photos off my project.

Great Barrier Reef

This is Bobbis and i’s project about The Great Burrier of Reef.

We want to show that we care about it and to look after it. we have started working on the great barrier reef  desine so far its going great there will be a picter of us making soon but here what it looks like on scratch.


Micro bit – badge

Bobbi and I created a badge and this is the video of the badge working.

Micro:Bit Step Counter

Build an Instument

This my Build an instument project in my desine book when we first started this project.
