Since Easter, Year 4 have been learning about programming in Computing using FMS Logo and directing a ‘screen turtle’ to draw shapes and patterns. We started by simply directing the turtle around the screen, drawing lines and simple squares. We progressed onto letters, more complex shapes and then tessellations using different angles and snippets of code that would repeat. We introduced [ ] to order commands and abbreviations for repetition and to shorten the commands.
Some of the results are amazing!
