Year 4 Computing – Writing Procedures in Logo

Mar 7, 2024Computing

This week saw the final part of our learning on Logo – writing commands and programming the ‘turtle’ to make certain shapes. We had already learnt a variety of commands including REPEAT which can help us to draw shapes without having to write lengthy lines of code. Today, we furthered our knowledge by writing procedures to enable us to repeat the drawing of a shape, naming our procedures and using the PU (pen up) and PD (pen down) commands to help us with this. We then attempted to create our own and had to work out how to debug our programs when they went wrong.
