Lesson 4 Finding your way

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

Pupils will apply their understanding of the importance of order in programs. They will then use operands in selection to determine the flow of a program. Pupils will then modify a program which will enable the micro:bit to be used as a navigational device. To code this, they will adapt the code they completed to make a basic compass.

  • I can use an operand (e.g. <>=) in an if, then statement
