#### A Scratch project to teach 'Selection' (Conditional Operators) - "The Wizard Project"

A quick and easy way to teach your class 'Selection' (Conditional operators: if, then, else) Watch the video 'Delve in, for twelve min! Part 2: Selection' Follow the lesson plan Use the pre-made Scratch project.

#### Algorithm sequence activity (cut out and order, add flowlines)

Can be used with any year group. Cut out and sort the algorithm, adding in flowlines. Note: Some children may put 'turn on tap' before 'put bottle under tap', this creates an interesting discussion point, as both algorithms achieve the goal. However, water is not wasted if the bottle is put under the tap before turning it on (Although there will be some clever child who states the tap must run cold first before putting the bottle under!). Extensions: Get the children to add in their own 'selection' (conditional operators; if, then, else) or decision diamond, e.g. is the bottle full? Yes - turn tap off, no - leave tap on. This activity is referred to in my online CPD videos: Delve in, for twelve min! See the video attached... For more info and to book me for training, please visit www.rundontwalk.co.uk

This display uses the context of Algorithms (in the computing curriculum) to demonstrate the process of learning a new skill. This can be referred to in class to boost resilience, independent learning (the 'find help' instruction could refer to teacher, but also peers, books, research etc), but also to remind, refresh and teach the importance of the clear, precise and chronological nature of algorithms. It can also be a teaching point for decision diamonds, and how they only ever have 2 outcomes (yes, no). Included in the download is a picture of what it looks like, and the master file with all the parts separate for you to edit/ print. Let me know if it works for you! This is also mentioned in my online CPD video: Delve in, for twelve min! Please visit www.rundontwalk.co.uk for more info, and to book me for training. (You may need to download the free font 'VCT Scream it loud 2' if you want it to edit the word doc, otherwise just use the pdf!)
