Introducing coding to year 3 and 4

We have been using 3 fantastic apps to introduce coding to years 3 and 4.

We began with simple forward and turn commands using Bee-Bot.


We then introduced more commands and processes using Lightbot – Hour of Coding.


Finally, some children moved on to Cargo-Bot, which uses multiple processes and loops.


All these apps are available through the App Store and are either free or less than a pound. You can also get Bee-Bot and Lightbot on Android devices. The children love these games and are learning the core principles of coding so please give them a try!
