Computing

Today in Computing we will be looking at codes. These are very similar to algorithms.

 

BBC Bitesize describes a code as:

A set of rules or instructions. It is made up of words and numbers and when you put them in the right order it will tell your computer what you want it to do. You can program lots of things with code.

 

Have a look at video on the web link below and then the power point below which will help you to write your own codes that could go into a computer.

Now its your turn to write some coding.

Can you draw me instructions, using the arrows from the power point on how to find the items below: 

Money bag

hook

steering wheel 

parrot 

flag 

treasure chest 

I have drawn an example for you below and put a video up of me checking my instructions are correct.
