The Year 1 children have started a block coding topic as part of our ICT learning for the new spring term. We are working in Expresso to understand the basics of computer coding. One of the aims is for the class members to understand the effect that instructions can have on an object on screen.
We started by choosing an object to move around the screen. The children were asked to input in a sequence of direction instructions. We then observed how our objects responded to these, and how we could modify them.
Some of the class members were able to explore the software a little deeper. They added in different effects such as changing the background image on the screen.
