Year 2 Probots and Probtix

Year 2 have been looking at Curiosity the Mars Rover and why we use robots instead of humans to check out dangerous situations.

We have then been using our own floor and screen robot called Probot. We programmed it to draw lines, patterns and shapes.  We then managed to use a repeat loop to draw regular 2D shapes like a square and hexagon.

Year 2 Making a Jam Sandwich Algorithm

Year 2 have been learning about precise instructions in a algorithm.  They instructed Mrs Sadler to make a jam sandwich which got very messy!  We forgot to instruct her to pick up the knife before getting some butter!  We then watched this video about another sandwich bot called Phil Bagge.
