This lesson is suitable for upper KS2 or early KS3 as an introduction to sorting algorithms. It’s an ‘unplugged’ activity I came up with for the CAS BETT masterclass that uses the Horrible Histories Kings & Queens song to get pupils sorting each other in different ways. Quite a lot of fun and a good way to teach teachers too!

Level: (Beginner)

Duration: (1 lesson)
