Session 8: Physical Education (Adding up to 50)

The eighth session sees the children involved in physical activity. The session starts off with some stretching exercises linked to the previous session; How a plant grows. The session is also linked to the concept covered in Session 2 where the children were involved in activities covering adding (+1, +2) up to a total of 50. Here these concepts are reinforced through different activities as children learn through play and games. This session gives children the opportunity to evaluate what has been learnt so far regarding programming. Children will instinctively try and guess the mysterious answer to the sum “the bee” child has to work out and by following the programming of the Bee-Bot they can tell on which number the robot will land. Here the mental visualisation of the series of actions that have been programmed by their classmate come into play. After the children discover the answer, they have to run and find that answer from the charts scattered around the yard.

Children enjoyed themselves very much during this session.
