It was good to see our young coders back in class last week. We’re starting some new content this term – adding a more graphical element to the work – and they took to it really well. Many started experimenting quickly and it’ll be interesting to see what they can achieve in the coming weeks.
To continue the work at home, the program being used in class is Python (with the IDLE code editor). These can be downloaded at https://www.python.org/
To practise with the Python Turtle module, they need to start their programs with: From turtle import *. If they need a quick reminder, here’s a screenshot of the program for a ‘square with colour and line thickness changes’.
