- To use loops
Pupils should be able to:
- Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
- Solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
Pupils needing extra support: Give them this model program, encouraging them to experiment with it, changing the numbers to see what they can create.
Or get them to use Scratch to build repeating patterns to support children who struggle managing written code, using the example to help.
Pupils working at greater depth: Encourage them to use embedded loops to create each of their rows.
