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

use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs


LO: To debug simple programs

Children have to debug programs trying to solve the example maze world.

Remember that debugging is not just an exercise in spotting errors - like you would do with your own writing in English for example, children will need to load in these programs into Reeborg, run them and then respond to the errors they see.

To load programs into Reeborg's editor window go to Additional options/Program in editor/Import program from file.

Remember to look for syntax errors (Spelling and typing errors) and commands in the wrong order.
