In this lesson, pupils will first look at examples of patterns in everyday life. They will recognise where numbers, shapes, and symbols are repeated, and how many times repeats occur. They will create algorithms for drawing a square, using the same annotated diagram as in Lesson 2. They will use this algorithm to program a square the ‘long’ way, and recognise the repeated pattern within a square. Once they know the repeated pattern, they will use the repeat command within Logo to program squares the ‘short’ way.

Learning objectives

  • To explain what ‘repeat’ means
  • I can identify everyday tasks that include repetition as part of a sequence, eg brushing teeth, dance moves
  • I can identify patterns in a sequence
  • I can use a count-controlled loop to produce a given outcome
