Sequence and directions

Year 1 Puffins continued their understanding of writing instructions when they used a program called Code for Life’s Rapid Router.

Puffins worked through the levels as they programmed a van to move from one point to another using programming blocks.

The blocks were as follows:

– Move Forwards
– Move Backwards
– Turn Left
– Turn Right

The children came across various challenges including working out the correct turn to use (left or right). Some children did really well working this out however the others had to use a BeeBot to help them work out the correct direction.

Sequence
The children were also introduced to a new Computing term called sequence. When programming, it is important to make sure that all the steps are presented in the correct order – this is sequence.

Here is an example of a real life sequence – in the correct order.
