CEIP Antonio Machado
Extension activities: EU Code Week 2016

As it is said in their web, the Europe Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way. It was from 15 to 22 of October 2016.

Students from CEIP Antonio Machado have been involved in this initiave for years. All the pupils, from 3 to 12 years old, participated on it using different technological instruments (robots, tablets or computers are some of them) and through a wide variety of subjects..

  2. To assess pupils' listening skill.

This activity was a review activity in which pupils listen to a colour and they had to programme Beebot to go.


  1. Pupils review their knowledge in a funny way.

  2. They continue working on their technological competence.

  3. Teachers can have other assessment tool. ​

As conclusion, Beebot motive students to work and help them on their learning process.

Primary first year class - (6 years old)


  1. To associate capital and lower letters.

  2. To foster the written skills.

  3. To encourage pupils' technological competence.

Steps to follow


This activity was used as a game in which pupils throw the dice, "read" the letter and need to send Beebot to their lower case correspondance. 


  1. Every first course student can identify the vowels in capital letter and match it with the vowel in lower case.

  2. Pupils were very motivated in the process.

  3. The technological competence was developed through the acquisiton of literacy.

As every time we use BEEBOTs, our students were very motivated and, once they know how to play, they are autonomous enough to work by their own. 

A Project for students, teachers and the whole school community.
