Using the repeat function on a floor turtle

We continued to use the floor turtles (Roamers) today. We were trying to learn how to program the turtle to repeat instructions. Some children managed (with help) to tell the Roamer to draw a hexagon.

They told it to: R6[F1,r60] – this means “Repeat 6 times, go forward 1, turn right 60 degrees”

Everyone thinks it is great using the Roamers and realise that there are lots of things that we can program in our every day lives such as; the dishwasher, video recorder, Sky+, toy robots. Can you think of any more?
