Creating shapes in Hopscotch

During Computing with Mr Baddhan today, Robins used an iPad app called Hopscotch, where they learned how to program characters to perform an action using instruction blocks.

The app allows children to insert various programming blocks including motion, drawing and repetition.

Mr Baddhan asked the children to build a code to create three shapes; a square, rectangle and a triangle.

The triangle was the most challenging shapre to create however some of the children guessed the angle required for a triangle was 120 degrees repeated three times.

Data from charts

Robins have been busy interpreting data from bar charts, pictograms and line graphs. They have enjoyed working with different partners and have showed excellent team skills, working together and supporting one another. Children have also been explaining how they reached their answers to the rest of the class.
