Pupils at Thatto Heath Primary School have been getting all inventive after studying robotics.

The children designed their own robots, programmed Lego robots and researched the history of robots as part of a school project.

They also invited a very special guest to the school assembly, their new Nao Robot.

First unveiled in 2010, the Nao robot was the world’s first robot to be able to display and detect emotions, enabling it to react to correctly answered questions by pupils by raising its arms in delight.

Thatto Heath Primary is one of only a few schools in the country fortunate enough to use a Nao Robot, which is the most advanced educational robot available, used to support pupils, not only with their academic studies, but also with their social skills.

The project is one of a many being staged by the school to encourage science among pupils.
