Awesome Codey Rocky Robots

This week on Monday we had the honour and privilege of welcoming Chorus and the am show to Pt England School. They came thanks to a nomination from Sam Carruthers. They also brought a giant present box, inside were five sets of Codey Rocky Robots.

On the day they arrived and since then my class and Room 16 a year 1 classroom have had a blast coding and experimenting with these robots. They have learned not only coding still, but a joy for coding and computer science and the skill to work together and it's only been two days.

We want to say a huge thank you to Chorus, the am show and all the people behind this kind gift. We hope you enjoy our movie and see the joy and excitement for yourselves.

Chevylee's Robot story

Once upon a time there was a robot called Merrlen. She lived in a junkyard. Her head was made of an old light and her body was made out of a cassette tape. Her leg as made out of a red spring and her other leg was made of a metal pin. The junkyard had lots of rusty metal parts. One day Merrlen was sitting on a box. Then she saw two cords, one was a laptop cord and the other was a wire from a tv. Next she was feeling lonely so she walked away. Then she sat down on lots of leaves. She looked over the side and saw a plug and she got a part of her and put it on the plug for a smile. Then she took it back to the junkyard. Then she realised that it wasn’t a real friend so she chucked it away. She went into a car engine and saw a plug and she connected her arm with it. BOOM! It electrocuted her. Then she woke up and saw a fan robot. “What is your name?” he asked. “My name is Merrlen" she said. “My name is Jack”. Then they clicked their hands together and they became friends.
