Pupils complete a times table test using the BBC micro:bit and identify how variables and random numbers have been used, before modifying it. They consider how variables and random numbers can be used to help a family become more active with micro:bit and write an algorithm to follow next lesson.

Key learning:

  • To predict how variables will be used in programs
  • To understand how a variable can be set to a random number
  • To write algorithms that use random number variables
