National curriculum links
Pupils should be taught to:
- Create and debug simple programs
- Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: It may benefit some children to view videos or real life examples of the animals moving around before they try and recreate them. Can they articulate what that want to happen? For example, to go across AND up and down, you can do with two programs.
Pupils working at greater depth: Need to be making good use of the predict > test > review cycle to ensure that they are always trying to improve what their characters are doing. They may add some differences so it is not repeating the same thing all the way across the screen, for example, the bird only swoops down every other time.
