Algorithms in Class 1

In the Autumn term we started learning about algorithms.  First, we used symbol cards to design our algorithm to move the Bee-Bot from one body part to another on the Bee-Bot mat (kindly purchased for us by our generous PTA). Then, we pressed the buttons on the Bee-Bot to turn the algorithm into a program.  Next, we executed the program by pressing the Go button on the Bee-Bot. Sometimes the program didn’t work but Mrs Cockshull said “Don’t worry, all you need to do is debug your algorithm,” so we did!  Do you know what ‘debug’ means? ……. It means to fix or to correct and is all part of learning to program or to code.
