Computing –

In our last lesson, you would have learnt about algorithms.

Algorithms – a process or a set of rules a computer programme follows to complete a task.

Your task this week is a fun one! Give your parent a set of instructions to carry out. This could be a simple activity e.g. pull a chair out from under the table, but make sure the instructions are clear for them.

Just like a computer programme, if you don’t give them clear instructions, they will do something silly and possibly the complete opposite to what you wanted them to do to begin with!

Have fun and remember to write down the instructions for your parent/brother/sister to follow.
