The teacher robot in Year 1

During computing today, Year 1 were given the task of writing an algorithm that would program the teacher robot to make a jam sandwich. In their groups, the children needed to think carefully about the the types of instructions they would need to include in their algorithm. They also needed to think about making their instructions clear and precise. Mr Patterson then took on the role of the teacher robot and followed some of the algorithms very literally. At this point, things got quite messy and the children found it very funny indeed. This was due to the fact that slices of bread ended up on the floor and Mr Patterson’s hands got covered in butter and jam. After this, the children looked back at their algorithms and debugged their program. This meant they were able to add in the missing functions to create the perfect jam sandwich. Well done Year 1!
