Year 2 – Lesson 6 – Break it down

Curriculum KS1 Unit Lesson

Learners will take on a larger programming task. They will break the task into chunks and create algorithms for each chunk. This process is known as ‘decomposition’ and is covered further in key stage 2. Learners will also find and fix errors in their algorithms and programs. They will understand this process to be ‘debugging’.

Learning objectives

To create and debug a program that I have written

  • I can test and debug each part of the program
  • I can plan algorithms for different parts of a task
  • I can put together the different parts of my program
