Lego Robotics Champions

A team at Duloe have been crowned champions at a Lego robotics competition run by Cognition Learning in Bude. The children had to compete against a number of other schools. They built their Lego robots, wrote code to direct them and gave a presentation to the judges. The children were an absolute credit to the school. We are so proud of what they have achieved and learnt through their determination and creativity. 

A huge thank you also to all the parents who supported the children on the day. We couldn't have done it without them.

Jubilee Excitement

What a way to finish the half term!

Well, in the blink of an eye we have reached the end of another half term and what a way to finish! The children were resplendent in their royalty clothes (I’m sure they could give Her Majesty fashion tips) and the wonderful turn out for the jubilee celebration was superb. I can’t believe the quality of the cakes that were brought in. The judges had a really tricky time making their decisions but congratulations to everyone for being delicious!

The learning around the school has had a distinctly regal feel with art in Class 1 and 2 and Class 3 using their ICT skills to code the Sphero robots into displaying and singing patriotic songs. Thank you to one person in Year 6 who took over the lesson from me to teach this old(er) dog a new trick or two. 

A huge thanks as well to the personnel from RNAS Culdrose who made the trip from Helston to award the Lego League prize for second place in the whole county to our Year 6 team. They were unfortunately unable to attend the ceremony at Culdrose but the officers who came more than made up for that by bringing their trophies along. The children also got a chance to have a VR experience of being winched from a helicopter onto the deck of a ship. Fantastic experience and we cannot be more proud of the team. Thanks to Cdr Colin Maude – Commander Air Engineering, Lt Cdr Keith ‘Daisy’ Adams - Senior Aircraft Engineer Maritime Uncrewed Air Systems and Lt Cdr Tom Wallis - Merlin Maintenance Test Pilot for making the experience so memorable.

Finally, thank you to you all for continuing to make Darite the amazing school it is. Have a wonderful half term (hopefully the weather stays good) and we are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday the 6th June.
