understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.
create and debug simple programs
LO: To know that a Beebot will follow instructions.
Well, I know this is a curriculum using Python but this first unit is leading towards it (honestly).
Introduction to using Beebots; what commands are available, the importance of always starting with "clear" and ending with "go".Children experiment with Beebots and become aware of all the available commands.
Whenever writing these commands down or displaying them around the classroom use the format presented below (this will link in with Python later).
clear() forward() turn_right() turn_left() go()
