Year 2 – Lesson 1 – Giving instructions

Curriculum KS1 Unit Lesson

Learners will follow instructions given to them and give instructions to others. They will consider the language used to give instructions, and how that language needs to be clear and precise. Learners will combine several instructions into a sequence that can then be issued to another learner to complete. They will then consider a clear and precise set of instructions in relation to an algorithm, and will think about how computers can only follow clear and unambiguous instructions.
