|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.
