Micro:bit - Lesson 1 - Wildlife Animations
Computing

Curriculum aims

  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

Subject content

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
  • use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
  • select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information


Science

  • Y3 - Plants - identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers
