Year 4 Robins continued with their Hopscotch work today during Computing with Mr Baddhan. They today learned the function of the repeat block to use blocks more than once instead of adding them separately.

Mr Baddhan showed the children an easy way to create equilateral shapes like a square using a repeat block.

The following is an example of a square shape in Hopscotch.

Move Forward 300
Turn 90 degrees
Move Forward 300
Turn 90 degrees
Move Forward 300
Turn 90 degrees
Move Forward 300

Bu the simpler way was to use the repeat function on the following blocks instead:

Move Forward 300
Turn 90 degrees

After this task, the children were introduced to the tilt function. They were asked to move their character left to right on the iPad screen using the tilt function.
