Try to plan ahead and think about the best route with the least instructions needed.  Think of a simple way to record you algorithm e.g. L F F R L F F

A big well done to both our children in school and families at home, what fantastic learning you are all doing! It has been lovely to see and hear what the children at home have been getting up to, either through emails or on the daily zooms. You have all shown so much resilience, we are all very proud of your hard work :)
