Lesson 2 Sequence

Curriculum > KS4 > Unit > Lesson

In this lesson, learners are introduced to your chosen Python IDE. They learn about the function of an IDE and why programmers use these to write programs. Learners are given some simple code to predict, run, investigate and modify. Whilst they take their first steps in Python programming, they will also learn about common errors and error types.

Learning objectives

  • Use subroutines in programs
  • Define a sequence as instructions performed in order, with each executed in turn
  • Predict the outcome of a sequence and modify it
  • Interpret error messages and define error types and identify them in programs (logic, syntax)
  • Describe the tools an IDE provides (editors, error diagnostics, run-time environment, translators)
