# Year 6 are computer programmers!

Hi Everyone,

We recently started our latest Computing unit ‘I am a programmer’

We have been using some really exciting We-Do Lego software to build and program different lego creations. I hope you’re enjoying the unit so far?

Last week we also discussed some new vocabulary linked to this unit. Can you explain what computer programming actually is and what an algorithm is in your own words?

Computer programming is when you give electronic instructions to a device to make it move.
Algorithm is when you solve a problem using a set of instructions

I think it’s amazing because we can a lot of things

Computer programming- is when you give something a set of electronic instructions.
Algorithm- is when you give something a set of instructions which is solved by a computer

Computer programming is when you give a set of instructions to a mechanical device so the machine can move. An algorithm is when you solve a problem using a set of instructions.😂😅😃

Computer Programming: This is when you give a set of electronic instructions to an electronic device to make it do something or move.

Algorithm: This is a set of instructions which allows the computer to solve a problem or do something.

I think We-Do lego is amazing because you get to learn new things such as how to program a motor to rotate using a set of instructions.Computer programming is a set of command that performs a task made by a computer.An algorithm is a collection of instruction that is followed in calculations.

Cannot wait to see video that shows you talking and getting things moving.

Computer programming is when you give an electronic instructions to a machine and the machine does a movement.
An algarithm is when you give a machine a set of instructions.

An algorithm is an instruction.

Computer programming is when you try and code something using an online source.
Algorithm is when you solve a problem using a set of instructions.
