Planning, coding and testing with Lightbot

Years 3 and 4 have been using the fantastic Lightbot app to improve their programming skills. I have set them challenges to predict which sequence of instructions will complete each level. This activity has been great for testing problem solving skills, learning from mistakes and recognising that testing improves the quality of algorithms.

If you would like to have a go for yourself, the Lightbot app is available on a variety of platforms, for a small charge of about £1.99, or you can try it on the Hour of code website for free.
