In our geography work we enjoyed using the Beebots to help us use positional language – forwards, backwards, left, right, quarter turn. We programmed them to follow a route.
We plotted a route from the classroom to the school office. We used positional language to describe our route such as forwards, backwards, left, right, straight on, around the corner, through the door. Then in groups we made, and labelled, our own 3D maps of the route using classroom resources.
We went out to the playground and observed the physical and human geographical features. We recorded our observations on whiteboards. Then we came back to class and shared our findings with each other. We will use our observations to draw a map of the playground.
