Computing - Week beginning 20th April

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

This term in Computing you are going to be completing some Hour of Code Online Courses. Hopefully most of you have worked through earlier Hour of Code activities with me and you know how wonderful and easy to use this resource is. The course is designed to last for a series of sessions, so you can work through it at your own speed. If you need to share devices at home  with your brothers and sisters then start on the youngest persons course first and work from there.

 

Here are some 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.
