Before the lesson
- To understand what a variable is and how to make one
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
Pupils needing extra support: support pupils with finding the ‘ask and answer’ block.
Pupils working at greater depth: encourage pupils to see if they can figure out how to get the computer to join together the answer with a phrase to make a single sentence ( you may want to give them a clue of looking at the green blocks and perhaps emphasise the word ‘join’). Also, encourage them to create a few different questions and think about ways to make sure their responses are interesting for the player.
