In 1/2 we have been working hard to program our Bee bots in longer programs to go around obstacles. Children have worked in their home teams of 4 to go around one obstacle successfully. Once this has been completed, more obstacles are added to make the program more complex. The aim of the exercise has been to use longer programs rather than adding a few steps, clearing and then starting again. Children have loved creating their obstacle courses and even though some teams have found it difficult, they have never given up and have continued in a desperate effort to get it right. The team work has also been great to watch as they have had to communicate and work together to create such long programs.

In our class on Open Day we showed the parents what we can do with the BeeBots. We only had access to 3 Beebots for this session, so had 4 group activities – One group worked on the smartboard with the BeeBot software, one group designed and drew environments for the BeeBots in the Tux Paint program on the class laptops, one group coloured  and cutout a life sized BeeBot and the last group programmed their BeeBots in pairs to go around their houses.

Many students in our class are blogging about the BeeBots on our school website where we have set up a Moodle. This is limited to the school community and can only be accessed by a password. The students can blog from the classroom or from home. We have some champion Kindy bloggers in our class!
