Clever Coding in Kindergarten

An exciting Term has started in Kindergarten with weekly Coding lessons taught by Director of IT, Mr Carter.  Our young students are learning how to program robots called ‘Bee-Bots’.  Enthralled students have been programming the ‘Bee-Bots’ to move in specific directions, and follow simple procedures.

Kindergarten Teacher Miss Skinner said, “This use of technology integrates perfectly with our current Mathematics unit on ‘Position’, where students are learning how to accurately describe the position of objects in relation to other things.”  

“Students have loved applying Mathematics and Technology in an authentic way to program their very own robots!”
