Communication and Language


"Using sequencing language, instructions and strong vocabulary is a key building block for Computing Programming in future learning."



Unplugged activities, or those away from the machine, give children an opportunity to develop their understanding of technology without the need for expensive devices.


Children could be asked to give precise instructions verbally, such as through giving instructions to a sandwich making robot, with links made to the importance of using the correct vocabulary, along with speaking clearly and precisely. Giving instructions could also form part of sessions linked to physical development activities, such as determining rules for certain playground games.
