Programming | Year 4 Classroom Blog


As a school we are really taking a full part in the Hour of Code week, today is the turn of Year 4.
Mrs Henry is very excited about your lesson as – The Force Awaken… Star Wars Coding!
One part of BEST you really need to do in coding is S – stick at it! Sometimes it isn’t always easy and takes a few goes. Before you ask your teacher for help there is a lot you can do for yourself – the VIRTUAL STUCK STATION! The program will show you videos – don’t skip them, but listen carefully as they will teach you what you need to know! Also if your code is wrong the computer will give you hints so you know what you are missing!
Best of luck
