Programming, coding & Robotics.

This morning Class 1 has been recapping what Algorithms are and why they are used when coding. Today children had to create algorithms to get a robot to complete different levels, we focused on moving forward and how we can use the turn right and left blocks to change direction. Children then looked at how we could apply this knowledge to a Beebot and created a ‘help sheet’ to use in the next lesson.
