A series of worksheets for the BBC micro:bit. Each has a task brief, suggested blocks to use and some extension suggestions. Each has been given a nominal difficulty level (based on my judgment).
The idea is not to give step-by-step instructions but present a set of relevant 'Lego blocks' to put together in the correct order. The blocks appear on the sheet approximately in order, but pupils will need to think about the order and may need to edit specific text or values. Where similar blocks are needed (such as strings for 'win' and 'lose'), they may only be shown once.
'Solutions 1' is a set of screenshots of my ideas on how to meet the briefs. It is not comprehensive; in particular, few of the more 'basic' solutions are shown. The solutions may not all be optimal. It is called 'Solutions 1' in the optimistic reckoning that more challenges may yet come!
Example-solutions.doc is NOT a document file. It is actually a Zip of tokenised files for working versions of the worksheets which can be loaded into the BBC's online editor. (To use, download the file and change the extension from DOC to ZIP.) Do bear in mind that there may be more efficient ways to achieve the same result (not least by converting from the Block Editor to Touch Develop). This is something that bright pupils might want to investigate, especially for harder tasks or to change how long images/text display on screen.
The files with CC in the name are based on activities suggested by Code Club, but using the Microsoft Block Editor (not Code Kingdoms JavaScript).

Find the coordinates that creates the required shape - some of the problems have more than one answer. Others (assuming you use integer values and stay on the grid) do not. Various triangles, square, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium.\n\nFinal page to identify given shapes - named, congruent, enlargement.

Qualitative vs quantitative, discrete vs continuous. 1. Cards to sort into two groups - may think of any way to split. 2. Flipchart to structure lesson with links to short videos etc. 3. PowerPoint quiz - identify whether discrete or continuous.

16 percentage increase problems based on 20% VAT. Originally designed as Quiz-quiz-trade cards.
QQT - Everyone has a card. Form pairs. Person A asks Person B what the price of an item is after VAT increase. If Person B unsure, then Person A uses the coaching hints to help guide Person to the correct answer. The Person B repeats process on Person A. (The Quiz-Quiz part.) Now the pair exchange cards and go off to find new victims ;) (The Trade part).

First find 10, 20 and 5% of some numbers. Then questions using these values. Finally questions with other values and with guidance on how to get the correct amount. Could be calculator, but sums should be easy enough without.
[3/2/16 Second version added for pupils who need further practice. 12/7/16 Answers uploaded]

Areas of rectangles, triangles, parallelograms and trapezia. Fairly straight-forward questions on area (or using area to find missing sides). Multichoice - so can be used with flash cards.
