Computing - Week beginning 18th May

We are Computer Coders (Badgers, Foxes and Otters Computing)

Hopefully you are all working through your course at your own pace. This week just continue where you got up to from last week. Please email in to the school office if there are any problems.

 

Remember these guidelines for each session.

 

  • You do not need a login, but just remember where you get to each session. Keep a record in your Orange book.
  • Spend about 30-40 mins each lesson on the activities.
  • Watch all the unplugged videos and video help and work through each activity, even if you have completed similar ones with me before, it will be good revision.
  • If you get stuck on a certain section you can skip forward to the next section but send me an email so I can send you some help.
  • Keep a list of keywords that we can add to a computing glossary (word bank) either in your orange book or in your Home PowerPoint portfolio if you have made one. ( Foxes and Badgers only).
  • If you can, at the end of your session, show someone else in your family what you have achieved or Foxes and Badgers if you have made yourselves a home Powerpoint Portfolio you could add in some snips of your work like we do at school.

Please feel free to let me know how far you have got and which parts are your favourites.

It would be lovely to hear from you all. Enjoy the courses, there are lots of new activities which look so fun and remember de-bug when things don't quite work out and use your logical reasoning
