P2’s Visit from Marty the Robot

Today Primary 2 had an exciting visit from Tanya from Robotical, the company who make Marty the Robot.  We learned a little bit about the different robots we might encounter in our lives and then we also learned how robots are programmed. We even got a chance to try programming each other!

While we were practising programming a classmate, Tanya led small group workshops. In the workshops we all got a chance to learn how to programme Marty and even to make him dance.

We all hope that Marty visits us again soon.  Huge thanks to Tanya for a fantastic workshop!

 

P2a Can Do the Robot Dance

This morning as part of our ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ Primary 2a started to learn how to dance the Learning Station’s Dancing Robots dance.  Our current topic is robots and we love to dance so this was a perfect way to wake up our bodies and brains!

Both Primary 2 classes are collecting small and medium sized boxes so that we can build a giant robot. We would appreciate any donations of boxes next week. Many thanks in advance for your support!
