Year 4 – Lesson 5 – Breaking things down

Curriculum KS2 Unit Lesson

In this lesson, pupils will focus on decomposition. They will break down everyday tasks into smaller parts and think about how code snippets can be broken down to make them easier to plan and work with. They will learn to create, name, and call procedures in Logo, which are code snippets that can be reused in their programming.

  • I can identify ‘chunks’ of actions in the real world
