Year 1 and the BeeBots

It was great to make a visit to see one of our year 1 classes enjoying the delights of iPad technology and good old fashioned Beebots!

The enthusiasm and skill level of the children was very impressive, they even challenged me to attempt level 9 and I failed at my first few attempts!

Beebots allow the children to explore and develop their programming skills using simple commands that they can review and improve.

The children have also been exploring a Jungle Journey theme in their curriculum and parts of the classroom have been turned into an interactive Jungle.

In addition the Beebot challenge was linked to enabling the Beebots to visit various parts of the Jungle. Great to see such a fantastic cross curricular link and the use of technology to engage the children in their learning.
