Algorithms on the playground

Algorithms on the playground

Year 2 continued their algorithm work on the playground. They had to create an algorithm to direct their friend from the start cone to the target box. The children could create their own route to this. They used directional vocabulary including; forwards, backwards, left, right, turn, clockwise and ant clockwise. The children did very well and discussed that sometimes you made a mistake and this had to be corrected in order for the algorithm to work.

  1. Learning algorithm’s are fun and also important.By using directional vocabulary which includes key words like – forwards, backwards, left, right, turn, clockwise and anti – clockwise, you can guide and direct to a certain point. by doing this you will never get lost!!
