Coding has been our key skill during ICT lessons in Year 2. We have been using the school iPads to explore how we can move an image of a girl around the screen by inputting a sequence of instructions.
The app that we used allowed the children to direct the character in different directions around the screen. The children worked independently to explore what each of the swipe actions on the iPad could achieve.
The children soon found that we need to carefully consider the instructions that we are asking the young girl to move. Some very long instructions might lead to the girl walking off the edge of the screen!
