Giants in SPACE
This week we have been working out how to buy our provisions for our rescue mission on the Moon. The children have been learning to recognise coins and notes and working out how to count coins in the same way we count 2s, 5s and 10s. Once the children could name £5, £10 and £20, they used notes to buy all of our space equipment:
As part of our Space Topic, we have been exploring how robots are used to help astronauts in Space. We have been using Sheffield Uni's MakEY Robots box to explore algorithms and trying to find out why Robots can be useful and how we can control them. We had 6 jobs to do.
We explored some of the robots being designed by Boston Dynamics. The Giants can know control their robots when they get to space, and know how to make their robots useful.
