This bundle contains a complete suite of carefully structured tasks for pupils aged 7 to 11. There is plenty for at least 12 lessons. Easily. (As a guide, the free starter resource has been used by one of our teachers for three lessons and it has not been exhausted - neither is the teacher!) It's all great fun and it works! Pupils frequently talk about it in the playground in the run up to lessons.
Teachers will be able to target some for Years 3 and 4, others for Year 5 and 6.
None of this stuff will stay dusty in a cupboard or be in practice used by only the most able. All abilities can use it and make good progress.
There is plenty of scope for differentiation. See the resource description for each individual set for details. In brief, it takes pupils from 'turn a light on and off' to sequencing a rainbow pattern that moves, to having the McRoboFace respond to its surroundings, to controlling motor speed and direction in different ways.
It contains 'on-screen' guides with starter coding using the Crumble Controller and its Playground from 4tronix. Our classes love it!
Teachers love it too.
1) The Crumble Software is inspired by Scratch - and even easier to get started with.
2) There are no fiddly wiring problems, no slippery croc clips, just standard audio leads. See the cover photo - a motor with speed and direction control by two buttons - just four 'push-in' leads!
A free sub-set of the lot is available for 'look and feel'. The cover photo on that shows the McRoboFace which pupils are excited by.
This has great application also for teachers and classes wanting to learn effective coding and then using that with DT self build models.
