Friday 17th November
This afternoon we revised the vocabulary we use when programming the Beebots. We then went outside with some instruction cards and pretended to be Beebots as we followed the commands.
In computing, the children have been practicing programming Beebots. They have been inputting instructions to make the Beebot travel to a particular destination. This was lots of fun!
Algorithms With Lego - 22/02/23
We revisited the term algorithm today. The children became the device and created their own algorithms for their partner to follow. They should great perseverance in ensuring that their partner was doing exactly what they said - even though, at times, this could be frustrating. Their oracy skills were really put to the test!
Safer Internet Day 6/2/23
We explored how we use the internet in school and at home. We discussed the importance of knowing our log in details and passwords and keeping these safe. The children are now working on memorising their chromebook log ins to help them keep their information safe.
We shared the 'Magic Window,' sharing how we can keep ourselves safe and what we can do if we see something we do not like.
We then drew pictures showing what we like to use the internet for, whilst reminding ourselves how we can keep safe when playing these games.

Algorithm Exploration (31.01.23)
This afternoon children worked in pairs to create simple algorithms for our B-Bots to follow. They had to make sure the algorithms had a clear starting point before beginning. We challenged them to create different shapes using their B-Bots - what a great link to maths from computing!
Exploring Algorithms 25.01.22
This afternoon, children extended their knowledge about algorithms. They completed 'unplugged' activities to create an algorithm so their BBots would trace a numeral. The children loved trying out their ideas with the battery operated BBots. The year two's were exploring how they could debug their algorithm to ensure turns and direction were followed exactly how they wished. Great team work and perservence shown by all.
