Our Robotics Club activity today was creating Bee-Bot Art. This was a lot of fun. We taped textas to our Bee-Bots’ ‘bodies and entered the code for the Bee-Bot to draw. Then off they went creating a great piece of modern art!
When our principal, Mr Soldani visited the ICT room this week, he was very keen to join in the Winter Olympic events with the students. After learning to use a Bee-Bot he practised his coding skills on the Cross Country Skiing event and was very happy to see his Bee-Bot make it to the Finish Line.
Our Art Show was a great success. Each class chose an art activity to add to our Secret Garden and it was displayed in our multi purpose room. What an amazing job everyone did and how beautiful it looked! We also had some great food stalls to enjoy – Yum! As well, the children all joined together to sing a song and perform an Indonesian Dance. Well done to everyone – it was a fantastic night for our community!
We made great use of our Bee-Bot loan from CSER Adelaide by introducing them to all of our students in the school during their Digital Technologies session this week. It was amazing to see the different ways that students interacted with them at each age level and how many of the children applied their knowledge of coding to create and solve problems, whilst the Preps discovered a whole lot of new thinking skills.
Session 1: What Did WeLearn?
Working collaboratively with a partner, learning directions, angles, counting, estimating distance, problem solving, programming, debugging, creating a sequence of commands, safety and respect for equipment, use of space, learning to help each other, taking turns . . . . A very exciting week!
