This half term in Year 1 we are beginning to understand algorithms in Computing. We gave our friends verbal instructions to tell them how to move around the room. Then we thought about directional instructions to give a computer character to move around the screen. This is how the children in Year 1 are starting to learn to code.
Incidentally, I want to say thank-you to Parents for the excellent attendance that the Year 1 children have! For the second time last week the children achieved full attendance. Children attending necessary medical appointments came back to school after their visits, so we won the competition again- hence "Choose your own clothes Tuesday" for the second time. Well Done children. Full attendance means no lost learning time- that is just what I need to maximise the effectiveness of my teaching in Year 1.
