iZWiZ Robotics offer hands on workshops, holiday clubs and birthday parties for children aged 5-14 years old.

Extra-Curricular Activities   –   Weekly After-School Clubs

I offer schools a half termly block of sessions to be run weekly at an after-school club (5 or 6 weeks).  Depending on the schools individual needs, these sessions can be 1hr to 1hr 30mins per week and can be tailored to the needs and abilities of your students.  Please contact me to discuss your requirements.  Max. group size is currently 14 students.  They are great value for money with classes starting from £7.50 – £8.50 per session per student depending on location.  I provide letters for parents and will take half termly block bookings and payment online via my website, so even less for you to have to organise at school.

The 2023/2024 academic year is currently fully booked for after-school club slots.  Please do get in touch if you would like adding to the waiting list for next year or even to reserve a day for your school for the 2024/2025 academic year as there is limited availability.  If you would like further details about how the clubs are run and linked to the NC POS for Computing and Design Technology, Science and Maths, please do get in touch.

Holiday Clubs

Are you looking for something new and exciting to entertain the children during the school holidays?  Does your little one love building with LEGO®? Would they like to learn how to make their models move? Why not book them onto one of the holiday clubs in your area?  

HOLIDAY CLUBS.  Our new holiday clubs run from 9am – 12pm or 1pm – 4pm (£20 per child) offering parents an alternative childcare option for their children and involve a fun packed day of different activities including LEGO® WeDo.2.0 building and programming challenges, virtual computer game designs using SCRATCH and seasonal arts and crafts. We also offer all day holiday clubs at some venues and where there is a demand from 9am – 3pm (£35 per child)These holiday clubs are hands on interactive sessions which involve LEGO® building and programming challenges.  We have a wide range of different robotics kits available for children to explore the amazing world of robotics.   Children work in pairs with the max. group size being 14 so plenty of opportunities for one-to-one tuition throughout the sessions.  I will teach the children how to use the software required to program the models which they have built using the Wedo2 robotics kits.    

Don’t see an event at a location near you?  Contact me and I’ll see if I can arrange a session nearer to you in the future.  I am still finalising dates and venues for Easter and Summer 2024.  Currently we use West Ardsley Methodist Church in Tingley and The Miners Welfare Hall in Garforth.  Places are limited so I encourage you to book on early to avoid disappointment.  I usually release tickets 6 weeks before the events so please keep checking back for further details.   Tickets are available to book online for our holiday clubs via the Make a Booking Tab at the top of the page.

Birthday Parties

Does your little one love building with LEGO®?  Would they like to learn how to make their models move and then compete against their friends?  Are you fed up of the same old birthday parties?  Why not treat them to a party which they’ll remember for years to come and let me entertain them for you.  Just let me know the date, time and venue and I can provide all the kit required for a fun packed party.  I can create bespoke packages to suit your child’s interests.  Please contact me for further details of the birthday packages that I offer.

ALL OF OUR PARTIES INCLUDE:• Inclusive, fun packed tasks for all ages taught by our lead tutor Emma, a professional, fully qualified and DBS checked teacher with 20 years teaching experience.• A choice of main activity from Racing Cars, Buzzing Bees, Party Mazes, Racing Spy Robots and Search & Rescue Missions.• Downloadable party invitations.• Certificates for all participants • Different mini coding challenges and prizes to be won depending on activities chosen.

School Workshops (1 – 1.5hr sessions)

Are you looking for a hands on workshop packed full of fun for your students? I offer 1hr or 1.5hr morning and/or afternoon workshops which can be tailored to your individual timetables and students needs. The max group size (due to kit requirements) is currently 28 students at a time working in pairs. Pair work also means students get to develop their communication skills, they learn to listen to each others ideas and cooperate with one another developing their teamwork skills. The sessions are highly engaging and encourage creativity and problem solving with content linking to the Computing and Design Technology national curriculum. Having 20yrs teaching experience in a range of different schools I understand the need for workshops to be as interactive and as fun as possible whilst still being educational and linking to the curriculum. These workshops are a great idea for small intervention groups and work particularly well for students with SEMH, SEND or Autism.   Please call to discuss the different age appropriate, cost effective STEAM activities and one-off workshops which I could deliver for your students.

I am a fully qualified teacher with QTS and 20yrs teaching experience, so why not book my workshops instead of a supply teacher or to cover PPA time.

I provide all the resources needed for the classes including the LEGO® WeDo2 kits and tablets.

ONE-OFF WORKSHOPS = From £100 for a one-off workshop. (Workshops typically last 1hr – 1hr30mins but can be shortened or extended depending upon your requirements.)  

HALF DAY PACKAGE = £160 for 2x 1.5hr workshops in the same morning or afternoon. 

FULL DAY PACKAGE = £225 for 3x 1.5hr workshops in the same day.  

Travel expenses (45p per mile) will be added if more than 10 miles from WF3 1PU.

DISCOUNTS GIVEN FOR HALF-TERMLY BLOCK BOOKINGS.  PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO CHECK AVAILABILITY AND FOR A PERSONALISED QUOTE.

Community Groups and Home Education Classes

I offer one-off workshops for community groups such as Brownies and Cubs Packs and groups of home educated children.

I also offer a block of weekly classes for children who are home educated and I will travel to the venue where your home ed group meets at different locations throughout West Yorkshire.  These classes are a great opportunity for your child to meet other children, socialise, develop teamwork skills, co-operation skills and build self-confidence alongside developing their creativity and knowledge and understanding of basic mechanical engineering, programming and computational thinking skills. But most importantly to have lots of fun and make new friends too.

Classes link to the NC POS for Computing and Design Technology, Science and Maths.

£100 per 1hr30mins workshop for up to 14 children working in pairs.  (Plus travel expenses if more than 5miles from WF3 1PU.)  These can be one-off sessions or blocks of 5 or 6 weekly classes.  Discounts given for block bookings.

Please get in touch for further details or to add your home ed group to the waiting list.
