Doctor Who and BBC micro:bit Missions start Monday 24th April
Tackle time and space with Doctor Who and the BBC micro:bit
The Daleks are back with a new plan - a Reality Bomb! It’s going to take all of your courage, inventiveness and Key Stage 3 computing skills to save the universe from this new threat.
Resources for Mission Sonic, the first of three, are now available.
Key Stage 3 Computing
- CREATIVE PROJECTS: Undertake creative projects that involve selecting, using and combining multiple applications to achieve challenging goals
- CODING SKILLS: Use 2 or more programming languages; at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems
- COMPUTATIONAL THINKING: Learn to analyse and solve problems in computational terms by;
- Decomposing a problem and breaking it down into smaller, more manageable, smaller problems.
- Algorithmic thinking solving a problem by using clear, precise steps and recognising that those steps can be used again to solve other, similar problems.
- Generalising (patterns) to stretch some learners by identifying similarities, connections and patterns between different problems and exploiting these to create new solutions to other problems.
- PROGRAMMING AND DEVELOPMENT: Learn to implement an algorithm as a program on a digital device by;
- Using arithmetic operators, if statements, and loops, within programs.
- Declaring and assigning variables.
