I’ll need to get back to this post later in more detail, but just to keep track here for a moment:
3:30 – 3:40
Snack & Chat
3:40 – 3:50
Watched a video of a flying robot lifting bricks while we talked about the word “Commands”, that we have to tell robots and computers what we want to do, and we do this by giving them commands.
Talked about who gives commands – in the army, teachers, Moms 🙂
We then looked at the BeeBot and talked about how we give a BeeBot commands.
3:50 – 4:00
Divided the kids up into three groups of 5, 5 & 6 – the first group of 5 came down to the carpet with me to do BeeBots, while the other kids went to the computers to draw a picture of a robot using a very simple paint programme.
4:00 – 4:10
Switched groups so a new batch could come to the carpet for BeeBots
4:10 – 4:20
Final group with the BeeBots
4:20 – 4:30
Watched a CeeBeebies Little Robots story.
