For year 3
1
Learning Intention:
To learn how to use instructions: forward, back, left and right to move the logo turtle
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*Introduce the terms fd, bk, lt, rt
*Explain that these are relative instructions and will 'change' as they are relative to the current position of the logo turtle. Give instructions to a child and demostrate this.,br> -emphasise 90 degrees, and number of steps / spaces
*Children to work in pairs, giving instructions on how to reach different pictures on a grid
Resources:
*Mixed ability (but MA and LA grid if less able pairs required)
Logo Grid
ICT Opportunities:
*No ICT this week - working on paper
2
Learning Intention:
To use the terms forward, back, left and right to draw a square
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*Give children instructions on how to draw a square using instructions: - forward, back, left, right
*Children to draw a square
*Introduce the clear screen command
*For extension, children can experiment making squares of different sizes (using numbers between 20 and 80)
Resources:
*ICT
ICT Opportunities:
*In ICT room
3
Learning Intention:
To learn how to use abbreviations when making quadrilateral shapes
To learn to use abbreviations
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*Recap on terms and instructions for making a square
*Explain to children that abbreviations can be used to make processing faster: Introduce abbreviations fd, bk, lt, rt, cs (clear screen)
*For extension, children can experiment with making rectangles
Resources:
*ICT
ICT Opportunities:
*In ICT room
4
Learning Intention:
To introduce the repeat function to make instructions quicker
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*Recap how to draw squares
*Identify that the same instruction is given four times - use this to introduce the repeat function
*Repeat 4[FD 20 RT 90]
End
*For extension: use the repeat command to make rectangles
Resources:
*ICT
ICT Opportunities:
*In ICT room
5
Learning Intention:
To learn how to use procedures to define a shape
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*To square
Repeat 4 [fd 50 rt 90]
End
*Now children can use the word 'square' to create a square
*For extension: Use the 'wait' command to slow down the speed of the turtle
e.g. fd 50 wait 30 rt 90
Resources:
*ICT
ICT Opportunities:
*In ICT room
6
Learning Intention:
To learn how to make a repeating pattern using a short command in between the square procedure
Instruction and differentiated activities:
*Remind children how to use the square procedure
*Remind children that we have used forward and rt. AS small step forward or a turn inbetween the square prodecures will produce a repeating pattern
*Children to experiment creating patterns using the square procedure and fd or rt commands
- e.g. a small increment forward between squares will produce a ladder effect
- e.g. a turn will produce a fan effect
- e.g. if you turn and fan a shape with a 'hollow centre' will result
Resources:

ICT Opportunities:

*In ICT room
