Year 3 - Roaming like robots!

We have become computer coders in Year 3! We worked in pairs to act as robots and programmers. Our robot would not move unless it was provided with a written code to tell it how to move. We needed to use commands to guide the robot around the course. If the robot made a mistake, we needed to change or 'debug' or code to make sure they took the correct amount of steps and turned the correct direction.

We used FD, BK, LT and RT as a short commands for forwards, backwards, left and back.

We needed to look at our code carefully - can you spot what needs changing in this code?

The course had lots of turns so we needed to write several commands to reach the destination accurately.
