SPIKE™ Essential

Great Adventures

This unit introduces your pupils to computational thinking. They'll begin to understand what a sequence is, be able to follow instructions to create a sequence and describe the sequence to their peers. They'll learn how to break problems down into smaller parts (decomposition), identify cause and effect, and understand simple loops. Finally, they'll explore the process of testing and debugging programs to ensure that their programs work as they’ve intended.

Your pupils will find ways to help the main characters, and practise recounting an experience using relevant details. This will help to develop their collaborative conversation skills.
