I have worked with children for over 40 years. I specialised in Computer Science, SEN and Speech and Language. In 2005 I achieved joint first in the Becta ICT practice awards. I taught Computing to years 1-6 for seven years. I created the Advanced  Colourful Semantic resources to help the children in my groups understand grammar and sentence formation. I wanted a scheme I could introduce in Reception Class then use as they progressed through school individually, in groups or full class.

Algorithm (Instructions) for a Pirate Treasure Map

(0)
An algorithm is the set of instructions needed to complete a task. This is an activity to be used away from the computer.(Unplugged computing) Children to use and understand control language. They move the mini robot or floor turtle around the pirate map to hide the treasure. They write the route or algorithm on a work sheet so the treasure can be found by someone else. They write where the treasure is on the back, then swap sheets with someone. If the instructions lead to the wrong place they can fix or debug their algorithm. Children can design their own robots or use the printouts. Here are the * I can statements* I can use numbers in instructions. I can use a 90 degree turn. I know that control instructions must be precise and clear. I can predict what my turtle will do when using a verbal or written algorithm. I can follow a series of simple commands(algorithm) to move around a course. There is a pdf file and a PowerPoint presentation that can be used as a lesson starter. I have used this activity with Year 1-4

Social Story about Telling the Truth

(1)
Social Story- A story that helps a child to understand a situation or event. This is a story I wrote one evening for a six year old girl I was working with. It is very basic and the illustrations are very simple. It helped her to understand that, making up stories about other children could upset them. It helped her to understand that, making up stories about other children might make her feel uncomfortable. It helped her to understand that, making up stories has consequences. Writing bespoke stories, targeted at an individual child, can quickly deal with issues that arise. Stories shared in the classroom or at home helped us to work as a team.
