Year 1


In this unit, pupils learn basic programming ideas through experimenting and solving problems with simple, programmable robots, such as the Blue-Bot. They will take on the role of a robot, responding to instructions they are given. Year 1 will take on the role of a robot-pirate to work out a sequence of instructions (an algorithm) to find their way to an objective. We will explore the Blue-Bot controls. Year 1 will follow, create and test sequences of instructions to solve problems with the Blue-Bot and predict what the Blue-Bot will do when given different sequences of instructions.


In this unit of 'We are digital artists' Year 1 will learn to use fun and colourful progammes on the computer to make beautiful paintings, just like famous artists do! We will discover how to pick different brushes and colours on the iPad to create amazing and unique artwork. Year 1 can use a special button called undo to fix pictures and try again.
