Year 1 Computing


In ICT, we are learning about algorithms and how to give instructions clearly. We had a go at the ‘Robot Game’ to see how well our instruction-giving skills were. In this game, one partner becomes the robot and the other partner must give a clear set of instructions about how to follow the path.

We found it very difficult at the start as most of the robots kept on coming off their path. After a while though, we learnt how to debug our instructions and help our partner stay on the line.

Max said “It was tricky at first because my partner couldn’t see”.

Mollie said “When I gave the instructions at first my partner nearly bumped into the pencil. After that, I changed my instructions to keep them on the trail”.
