Term 3 - Beebots and Programming

Fit 4 Fun!

We started term 3 with a PSHE focus looking specifically at physical and mental wellbeing, please see knowledge organisers above. We looked at ways to keep our minds and bodies healthy. We created a fitness routine and explored healthy habits by thinking about daily and evening routines to look after ourselves. In addition, we looked at the food we eat and thought about how we could make a balanced lunch box. Finally, we discussed different types of emotions, how to deal with big feelings and where to ask for support. Practicing doing some meditation has helped us know how to calm ourselves and re-focus our emotions. 

In groups we picked 5 things we thought were the most important to keep us healthy in our daily lives. 

In PE we looked at keeping our bodies healthy and created some exercise routines. It was lots of fun!

We discussed different food groups and learnt that too much of some types of food can become unhealthy. We discovered that having a range and balanced diet is best. We created our own balanced lunch boxes.

Through the colour monster book we talked about different emotions and times that we may feel like this. We also practiced some meditation to help us channel our emotions when we feel overwhelmed and confused. We thought about safe spaces we can talk about our feelings and who we can talk to. 


To begin our Beebot topic we will be looking at directional language and so we understand the instructions on the Beebot. We will learn the code that Beebots use and create our own Algorithms to test. Through exploring algorithms we will direct the Beebot to destinations and also identify when we need to debug algorithms to correct them. Finally, we will look at a programming software to complete this topic. 

We began the topic by learning about directional language such as forwards, backwards, turn left and turn right. We worked in partners to follow directional instructions. 

We explored using Bee-Bots and used mats to navigate them and create algorithms to follow. We also practised creating algorithms and debugging skills on the Bee-Bot app. 

We created our own Bee-Bot maps so that we can plan and route our own algorithms for another group to try and follow.
