The children have been learning how to use our robot, Dash. He is controlled using the iPad and the children can move him, turn his head, make him talk, ask questions and record their own voices.
The children have been controlling Dash to make him draw and make marks, they enjoyed seeing the circles they could do as he went round and round.
Through exploration of what they can do with the Magsnap construction, some of the boys figured out they can make a domino rally. This was the focus of lots of excitement and play, they have continued to make these domino rally's all week and it's just as fun and exciting as the first time.
Today the children acted out the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. First we needed to make a bridge that was strong enough to walk on!

Once the bridge was done, we walked through the story together and filmed it!
