Robot invasion in Year 5

Comments Off on Robot invasion in Year 5 68

What a wonderful start to this term’s theme topic. The children have put in a great deal of effort and produced robots in a range of designs and for different purposes. Everyone was highly enthused and eager to share information about their robots with their peers. You may even spot some of the robots around the school.

We have explored how robots have developed over the years and the impact they have on society. We researched and made notes on various real-life incidents where robots have been used in situations which may have been hazardous to human rescuers. Once we had established the factual information, we developed our writing skills to create a newspaper report on our chosen incident.

We developed our learning further through the philosophical discussion on the value of robots in todays world linking strongly to employment. As a result of the debate, we wrote persuasive arguments for and against robots in society.
