Possible first Y7 Python MicroBit lesson

Here’s my first stab at a first Year 7 MicroBit lesson activity sheet – it assumes you’re using Mu as your editor, but not REPL (command line). It’s untested and will evolve with suggestions and with experience using it in class.

Students will learn how to write, flash and save code in Mu. They then learn about while True: loops, displaying built-in images, controlling the MicroBit using buttons A and B, the touch buttons and detecting shaking to trigger events.
