Millfield: Fairground rides - Y6 Control


Created: May 2006

Year: 6 Level: 5

Teacher Comments:
Children built fairground ride models in DT, automating them with technic lego. In ICT, they built and automated a virtual fairground, controlling it with switches. It was important to work through the simple examples and projects provided by the program prior to the children planning their own fairground. This pupil quickly and clearly understood the potential of the control systems. He was able to add different types of sensor to control the modules. He achieved Level 5 in this work as he produced complex procedures without assistance.
