How to brush your teeth videos!

In Computing, pupils in Reception class have been learning about algorithms. An algorithm is a set of instructions for carrying out a task. After coming up with an algorithm for helping Mr Edmondson to make a cup of tea, they then made their own instructional videos to explain and show others how best to brush their teeth. Please have a watch and let them know what you think! Questions to think about…

Q1: Is the algorithm in the correct sequence (order)?

Q2: Are the instructions clear and detailed?

Q3: What different time connectives did the children use?
