WALT: Create a computer program using algorithms
Can you remember what an algorithm is?
For the computer to make something happen, it needs to follow clear instructions.
Today’s topic is a coding lesson on Purple Mash. Each star task has been set as a 2Do and has clear instructions for you to follow. You have three stars to choose from but perhaps you would like to do all three, starting with the one star challenge. The three star challenge is tricky so make sure you listen carefully to the video and use the hint button if you need to.
Make sure that you watch the video before each challenge so that you know exactly what to do. Once you have completed each challenge you will have to click the arrow at the top of the screen to play your code. Make sure that you click on the object if it says ‘when clicked’ otherwise nothing will happen. The ‘next challenge’ arrow will then flash up if you have entered your code correctly.
If you get stuck, there is a hint at the bottom of every challenge and you can click the question mark in the top corner to help you. If you are still stuck, ask on the blog and we will be able to help you.
