Key learning:

  • Understand the micro:bit is a tiny computer which needs instructions in code to make it work.
  • Understand that sets of instructions for computers in a sequence are also called algorithms or programs.
  • Use the MakeCode editor to create instructions in code that the micro:bit can understand and then transfer them to the micro:bit.
  • Know the micro:bit has an LED display output which it can use to show words (as well as numbers and pictures).
