Video Bibo, 'It is not just a machine... He is different' Bibo is a robot, he has a warranty for 100,000 years. Bibo wheels his Ice Cream trailer to his corner each day, he watches the clock, no one comes, day after day, after day. We have little clues that not everything is how it seems. Where is everybody? We don't see any customers and Bibo seems to be remembering back to his past, echoing with the sounds of children's laughter.
Resource This was a revision lesson on 2D shapes for a year 2 class. There is a lower ability (LA) and more able (MA) sheet. The lower ability children chose shapes to make their robot and named the shapes they had used and the more able children had to choose the shapes from clues about the shapes' properties.
Display To help teach children about robots in industry, we have made resources for teachers to use in the classroom. The Robots in Industry themed classroom banners have been given a time saving double mounted effect, which will also save on your school stationery.
Resource As part of an alternative history unit we looked at the history of robots and machines, comparing the machines we use and rely on now to the machines and robots used in the past. The children really enjoyed talking about old machines and were fascinated by the google self-driven car (a future machine).
