Beebot Programming with P2/3!

Beebot Programming with P2/3 on PhotoPeach

P2/3 had great fun programming the Beebot robots using their knowledge of right, left, forwards, backwards and the four compass points to help them. They worked cooperatively in teams to programme and navigate the Beebots around various different mats…sometimes their directions worked and sometimes they did not! Look out for any Beebot escapees in the playground!!!
