Year 6

Programming B – Sensing

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit

This unit is the final KS2 programming unit and brings together elements of all the four programming constructs: sequence from year 3, repetition from year 4, selection from year 5 and variables, introduced in year 6, programming A. It offers learners the opportunity to use all of these constructs in a different, but still familiar environment whilst also utilising a physical device - the micro:bit. The unit begins with a simple program which learners build in and test in the programming environment before transferring it to their micro:bit. Learners then take on three new projects in lessons 2, 3 and 4, with each lesson adding more depth.
