We visited Redlands Primary school in Reading and spent the day with Mr Harvey’s the year 4 class. To begin, we introduced ourselves and the team and gave a brief overview of the day and what we expected, followed by a short demonstration of littleBits. Then we asked everyone to design a creature and share their ideas. To make it easier to share ideas within each group, we asked them to co-design a creature by folding a piece of A4 paper into three, and then each adding a part of the creature – a bit like the game of consequences.
The three pictures below show examples of the Creature in a Cup workshop in progress.
Here are the class creature in a cup final performances.
