The children in Year 4 have begun coding using the computer application called ‘Scratch’. Having begun to investigate how it can be used yesterday, they have begun to program sprites to draw and to make patterns using algorithms. The children were then asked to make an algorithm for Mr Rodgers to play a CD in the CD player. Many rather ‘interesting’ sets of instructions were produced by the children which they found that they needed to then debug so that the CD could be played. For homework, they have been asked to create an algorithm to make a jam sandwich. This will have to be handed in on Monday.
