The past few weeks we have been working on developing our understanding of sequencing, computational thinking and the mathematical concepts of coordinates, distance, and location. We we began our Beebot stations by reviewing forwards, backwards, left and right movements by playing a blindfold game. We reviewed all of the new language which we had learnt […]
Coding a Beebot in Ms. Mulcahy’s 4th Class
This week we learnt how to code a Beebot. We had worked hard learning how to code a human bot and writing algorithm’s and now it was our chance to write some codes for the Beebot. We discussed how the sequence of instructions was important as they help us to know what to do and […]
Our Coding Journey begins with Coding a Human Bot!
4th Class have began their coding journey. In order for us to become successful coders we had to learn how to use directional language properly. We discussed what directional language was and made a list of words on the board such as forwards, backwards, clockwise, anticlockwise, left and right. The aim of our lesson was […]
BeeBots in Junior Infants – Ms. Keane
Ms. Keane’s class have been learning a little bit about basic programming. They have been programming BeeBots, which are exciting little robots designed for use by young children. The Beebots are a perfect tool for teaching counting, sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun! The children practiced using directional language such as forward, backward, left […]
