Heathrow Primary School, Harmondsworth Lane, Sipson, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 0JQ
This term, children have learnt basic programming ideas through experimenting and solving problems with simple, programmable robots – Blue-Bots. The children spent time exploring a Blue-Bot’s controls so that they could learn how it works. They enjoyed inputting a sequence of instructions into the Blue-Bot so that they could get the robot to move around a treasure map. The children also looked at the way they behave online and how that can affect people’s feelings, even though we can’t see or hear them. The children made their own worry box and as a class discussed who they could turn to when see or hear something online that upsets them.
