Today we started a new unit for computing on algorithms- or very precise instructions. I pretended to be a jam-sandwich making robot, and the children quickly learnt that computers do not think the same way that people do... Pictured here are the instructions "put the butter on the bread" and (when time to clean up) "put it in the sink".
Not pictured is my personal favourite: "spread the jam on the bread". There was no mention of a knife, so I managed to get strawberry jam all over my hand!
Robots, programming, debugging and funny sounds from vegetables: It was all happening in Year 6 this afternoon when Hippos joined their buddies for an afternoon of computing.
