I am going to be posting a selection of optional tasks for those of you who wish to continue developing your computing skills at home.  I am aware that some of you will not have access to devices or are having to share with other members of your family so I will add some ‘unplugged’ activities as well.

Please do ask an adult to share your achievements; whether that be by screen shot, a link to something you’ve created or simply tell me what you’ve be up to. 

Online Safety

Many of you now are spending more time than usual online so it is more important than ever to cast your mind back to what we have learnt in our online safety lessons.

REMEMBER it is easy for people to hide their real identity online.

NEVER share your personal details with people you meet online.  

If you come across something inappropriate or that upsets you TELL an adult.

Below are some links to thinkuknow activity packs that are produced by the education programme of the National Crime Agency.  Each activity pack is designed to be completed with an adult at home and will help you learn and speak together about things that are important when interacting online.  

Please do watch the short videos these activity sheets link to even if you are not doing the tasks.

Coding Activities

The tasks you can choose from this week are on the website  If you want to create an account to save your work you can do so but it is not necessary if you just want to dip in and out of the tasks.

The following tasks will embed your knowledge of sequence, repetition and selection.  Remember as the tasks get more difficult just decompose the problem by breaking it down into small steps.  These tasks start off easy and get more difficult as you progress through the levels.  Although I have given suggested tasks for each year you are free to try any of them – if a level gets too difficult just stop, be proud of your achievements and if you want to do some more just move onto one of the other tasks.


Top Tip : When attempting to put repetition (loops) in your code remember to look out for the patterns in the paths.

Year 5 (extension for Year 4 )

Year 5 and 6 children, please concentrate on completing the tasks using the minimum number of blocks specified – this will really improve your skills when using repetition (loops).  Some of the places where repetition can be used are tricky to spot so don’t get disheartened if you need to use more than the number of blocks suggested; it is the completion of the task that is most important.  Look out for the PATTERNS.

This week’s challenge will help you with your typing skills (please see the link on the Computing Home Learning Page).

Why learn to touch type?

When you can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Many people quickly learn to touch type faster than they can write with a pen. The important things to remember are:

  Use the correct fingers

  There's no need to rush!

  Always rest your wrists on the desk.

You should take a rest, and shake your hands and arms to relax your muscles if you get tired.

It's important not to look at your hands when you are learning to type. The best way to ensure that you don't look at your hands is to cover them up - you can make a simple box out of cardboard or wood to cover both the keys and your hands.

You will need headphones or speakers to enjoy the song and dance in each game.

There are 4 levels and I would like everybody to start on Level 1 and work through the various levels carefully.Health and Safety

Sit comfortably with your back up straight and your feet on the ground!

Happy typing!
