Sofitel Hotel Gatwick

St Lawrence School youngsters compete with Lego


By George Harry-Berry, Year 6

On Friday 11th January a group of Year 6 pupils from St Lawrence Primary School took part in an FLL Lego Competition held at Sofitel Hotel, Gatwick Airport. FLL stands for First Lego League, and this year’s theme was hydrodynamics. 

Members of Lego Club, Bruno Benjamin, Archie Smith, Joshua Berman, George Harry-Berry, Hugo Stillwell, Oscar Harman, Leo Harris and Bea West, took part in a variety of missions where they programmed their robot to move in different directions and take part in a variety of missions.

The robot took weeks to build, and during the competition the pupils learnt more about programming and team work, and had a fascinating insight into the world of engineerring.
