Year 1


This week during Computing the children have been learning what an algorithm is and learning how to follow instructions carefully to solve problems. The children began their lesson by discussing what an instruction is and why it’s important to follow them. What will happen if you don’t follow instructions? Things will go wrong. The children worked in partners and gave their partners instructions to create a pattern with lego. The children discussed what would happen to the pattern if they you didn’t follow the instructions. Well done Year 1.


This week in ICT the children have been following on from their previous lesson of learning to follow instructions to solve algorithms. This week the children had to follow instructions in order to make a pattern. The children then used their pattern ideas to create a patchwork coat for Elmer on Purple Mash. The children enjoyed using the painting tools in computing this week. Well done Year 1.
