Year 6 – Lesson 4 – Finding your way

Curriculum KS2 Unit Lesson

Pupils will apply their understanding of the importance of order in programs. They will then use operands in selection to determine the flow of a program. Pupils will then modify a program which will enable the micro:bit to be used as a navigational device. To code this, they will adapt the code they completed to make a basic compass.
