Website 2DIY, Bee Bots Here’s a lesson I’ve done many times with Year 1 children and always found works well as an introduction to a series of lessons about control. (also includes lesson presentation)

Website       Logo - Logo Jottings Sheet 

Quite often when I teach Logo programming, children like to jot down the commands that they've discovered/learned so that they can keep it to either use in the next lesson or take away to try at home.

I've just made up this simple sheet that will hopefully help them this year to make notes on in a clear, structured way:

I enjoy teaching LOGO programming to Year 4 each year not only because I like the problem-solving work required but also because I like seeing children become enthusiastic about the computing side of ICT.

There is a variety of software available that offer LOGO-type tools, however my preferred program to use is the original MSWLOGO as I've found it offers a lot more functionality than its competitors and is a freeware product which children can therefore download/install at home easily if they so wished to.

To put the topic in context, it builds upon children's prior experiences of programming real 'floor turtles' (i.e. Bee-Bots and Pro-Bots) and their usage of the fab Focus on Bee-Bot and 2Go software where they control on-screen 'turtles' by simply pressing buttons.

Website    Logo - Adventures in Logo  For this post though, I thought I'd just outline some of the ways that I teach children in Year 4 how to program using MSW LOGO, since I am just starting this topic again with this year's class at the moment.   @simonhaughton @teachesict
