KS1 Programme of Study Reflections
understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices Scratch presents algorithms visually and simply, it additionally demonstrates how they are used on digital devices
programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions Scratch shows that algorithms require unambiguous instructions in order to complete the program
create and debug simple programs Scratch enables students to easily and visually detect problems within their programs and edit the colour blocks to debug the program
use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs Prior to building the instructions on Scratch, the students can determine the actions they wish the Sprite to carry out and predict the instructions that will accomplish this

 

An Hour of Code

This program is easily accessible for primary students of all ages and demonstrates the ease at which coding can be completed within the classroom.
