Year 2 – Lesson 5 – Algorithm design

Curriculum KS1 Unit Lesson

Learners will design an algorithm to move their robot around the mat that they designed in Lesson 4. As part of the design process, learners will outline what their task is by identifying the starting and finishing points of a route. This outlining will ensure that learners clearly understand what they want their program to achieve.
