Today we’re going to mix things up a bit and play with some Lego!
We’ll split into two groups so that everyone has a turn with the Lego.
LEGO Play: Build your own Robot
Computer Play: Lego Games
Form One have been learning about Fantasy, so today we are going to have some adventures with Castles, Princesses & Knights!
We’ve got some pictures of a Knight on a Horse, a Castle, a Crown, and a Princess. We’ll be placing those under the mat, and I’ll ask each group of children to tell a story involving those characters, while sending the BeeBot off on a mission to bring the Crown back to the Princess.
Explore Dora’s Magic Castle Adventure, but choosing any Game, or coming back for more!
All the different coloured keys to the different coloured doors must be found to locate the wizard’s wand to break the spell on the castle.
We also have a number of Mike the Knight Games to play, on CBeebies.
Using the scrap paper by the printer, I’d like you to draw a Castle of your own design. What would you castle look like? Does it have tall towers? Lots of window? A landing pad for a Dragon?
The Reception Class has been learning about Fairy Tales and has been covering Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so it’s a fun chance to do some storytelling with the BeeBots.
We have a Whiteboard activity today, that the children can do some dragging and dropping:
Here’s another one if that one is too boring: http://www.iboard.co.uk/iwb/Goldilocks-One-Scene-Focus-147
We’ll split into larger groups today, to walk the BeeBots through the stages of the Goldilocks story, using these pictures under the mat: http://img.speakaboos.com/images/assets/worksheets/558×722/picture-puzzle/goldilocks-and-the-three-bears-picture-puzzle.jpg
Explore the world with Mouk – the little travelling bear:
Create your own story book about you and your family
Another useful presentation about BeeBots from MacICT, an excellent online resource:
An interesting presentation about Computing in School and the new Computing Curriculum:
And a very useful overview of teaching Computational Thinking:
Draw a clock on the floor, on paper, or create a clock with tape. Place the hours from 1 to 12 on the clock. Make the 3, 6, 9, and 12 bold or larger for this beginning time activity. Talk with children about what time means. Discuss the difference between analog and digital. Practice reading analog and digital clocks. Practice converting between analog and digital time. Talk about relative time (earlier, later, etc.).
