Some new Bee-bot Fans
My bee-bots are currently visiting the Year 1 students of Holy Family Primary at East Granville.
Over the next few weeks the students and teachers will be using the Bee-bots as part of their Mathematics lessons as they investigate representing Position in the Space & Geometry strand. We will also be exploring measurement concepts by estimating the number of steps Bertie Beebot needs to take to cover various distances we would like him to travel.
The Beebots also provide engaging play opportunities which support our Second Language Learners to understand and use locational and directional prepositions. So in planning simple journeys for our Beebot we will be focussing especially on using prepositions to describe the places that Bertie visits eg return from the flowers to the beehive; along the path past the gate
