Session Two: Breaking Down the Problem into Chunks
This activity explores the concepts of pattern recognition and problem decomposition. It illustrates these ideas using a popular children's book, "We're going on a bear hunt" by Michael Rosen.
Children are asked to apply their understanding by then creating functions using the Blockly editor on the Rapid Router website. They are encouraged to share their solutions to the challenges provided, and to learn from each other.
Also provided in the resource are model solutions to the challenges, to enable teachers to easily support learning. Wall displays, assessment and self-assessment guides, cut-out resources and record sheets are also included.
