Before the lesson
- To understand nested loops
Pupils should be taught to:
- Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals
- Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs
Pupils needing extra support: Provide them with the following format:
repeat 10 [repeat 4[fd 100 rt 90] rt 36]
Explaining that they should only change the coloured numbers. The red number should be the number of sides the shape has, and the blue number should be the angle that’s written underneath the shape on the command sheet.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to create a circle and then include that within a nested loop. Should be editing nested loops after creation, showing an awareness of which parts they can or can’t change.
