National curriculum links
Pupils should be taught to:
- 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
Pupils needing extra support: Should have correct vocabulary modelled throughout the lesson and may benefit from working with a partner.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should plan a game with a range of actions for the dinosaur.
