Over this half term in Computing, Year 4 have been using the application FMSLogo to program a screen turtle to draw simple shapes and letters.
We have been creating snippets of code and then will be putting them together to form longer algorithms. Of course at first it went wrong and the turtle would vanish off the screen somewhere, so we had to debug the program and correct it. We have now mastered some shapes and moved on to letters. We have been able to move the turtle using pen up and pen down and copy and paste code to repeat actions.
Article 29 – we have the right to develop our talents and abilities.
