To access Espresso Coding, CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW to jump to the Espresso Coding hyperlink inside the Year 3 "Computing Zone".
You will need to use the school's Espresso Coding login and password to access the website. We are not able to publish this openly (it's a secret!), but hopefully everyone knows it from the Home-School Contact Books as it was at the bottom of the diary each week. If you have any problems, please email Mr T or Miss Manley to get the information you need.
TASKS FOR WEEK 10 - LOOPS & REPETITION (Week 3)
In this unit, the idea is to understand how a computer uses 'LOOPS' as a repetition to enable it to do things over and over again.
You should have completed Lessons 1-4 from Week 7 and 8 of the Home Learning before attempting the tasks below as the skills all build upon each other and need to be practiced and learnt sequentially.
UNIT 4b - "Repetition and Loops" - Lesson 5: Animation with Loops
Ever wonder how, in a computer game, certain things on the screen do the same thing over and over again for ever? Well this is the code that makes it happen! There are 6 short lessons to complete. Remember to watch and listen to the videos. You can skip a step if you feel confident.
Unit 4b - "Repetition and Loops" - Lesson 6: Your Own App
As always, this is the part of the lesson sequence that tests ALL your skills from this section and previous sections. What you decide to create is totally up to you! Watch the video carefully, then have a think about what you would like to happen in your program that might involve loops and repetition.
Make sure you SAVE your App at the end using a sensible file name (using your name or initials as part of the title) so we can easily find it and watch what you created back at school
Please Note: If you are unable to access Espresso Coding from home, do not worry, we can catch up on any missed tasks when school re-opens.
