The children all thoroughly enjoyed using the Beebot to program it to move to the letter that their name begins with. The children waited patiently for their turn and watched it moved with great enthusiasm.
This week our outdoor learning is focused on using a roamer and how we program it to move. We spoke about which buttons we needed to press in the correct order, this was very tricky to remember the sequence but with a little help from each other we were able to make the roamer move. Each child chose their coloured pen, pressed the buttons, listened for the beeps and then watched the roamer draw lines.
The children then wanted to make the roamer go in a straight line so they worked together to move the pieces of paper in a line and then took turns to make the roamer move all the way down the paper. Great curiosity and enthusiasm was on display.
