This lesson introduces pupils to Scratch and also covers the following:
The scratch Interface, Making and using Variables, Using IF blocks plus a few other challenges throughout the activities set.
I have made it as simple as possible to suit SEN kids too and it is filled with labelled diagrams showing steps to go through. They do a guided activity and then a few challenges to see if they remember how it is done.
They are also asked to explain certain blocks of code to show their understanding. This should cover the main Skills, Knowledge and Understanding concept.
Pupils to read the news article and discuss answers to the questions in the right panel. There is also a link to the BBC video and I have attached the video formatted to .mp4 to it can be played by many video players.
Questions are differentiated from simple questions to the more difficult ones. Also, the video allows pupils an option to either watch it or read about the article.
In this lesson I introduce students with an overview of programming and give then a variety of activities.
I have also made some fully commented python code to match with the lesson activities.
You may wish to remove some of the context. This lesson should cover an hour. If you are happy with my resource which I am pretty sure you may… then keep an eye out for the other coming lessons.
