This week, they have used the controls forwards, backwards, left and right to predict how a Bee-Bot would move from one point to another. Before putting their prediction to the test, the children had to

The children explored how they could adapt their pattern by adjusting the tempo (the pace of the music) and the instrument used. Some of the children chose to create a repeating pattern while others used th
