Years 1 and 2 have been using the Bee-bot app to create algorithms or sets of instructions. This is a great introduction to coding for younger children and makes the link between input and output. I have also encouraged the children to predict what they think will work, before testing their predictions. This shows children that algorithms have to be tested, and that they don’t always work first time.
If you would like to try Bee-bot at home, it is available for free on IOS devices from the App Store.
