- To understand what pattern recognition and abstraction mean
Pupils should be taught to:
- Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
- Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
Pupils needing extra support: May need help with adding new costumes to the existing animal sprite and changing one or two of the broadcast received blocks to reflect the new costumes and words.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be encouraged to alter both the animal and the food and attempt to alter the text on the Abby sprite to make sure the sentences make sense.
