Pupils needing extra support: Can be provided with a copy of the Activity: Micro:bit program (V1) or (V2) or use slides 6-7 as a visual aid. Should have support with verbal prompts. Leave the Pupil video: Programming an animal monitor video playing in the background as they work.
Pupils working at greater depth: Pause at points through the Micro: bit programming and see if the pupils can suggest what code comes next. Challenge them to add further comments to explain more functions in the program itself.
