Year 3 – Lesson 2 – Maze movement

Curriculum KS2 Unit Lesson

In this lesson, learners will program a sprite to move in four directions: up, down, left, and right. They will begin by choosing a sprite and sizing it to fit in with a given background. Learners will then create the code to move the sprite in one direction before duplicating and modifying it to move in all four directions. Finally, they will consider how their project could be extended to prove that their sprite has successfully navigated a maze.
