Class 4B’s Scratch projects

4B have spent the last four weeks developing their own versions the Scratch maze game which 4L and 4O worked on earlier this term. Here are some examples of their work.

Abdullah and Zanira have used event blocks, move blocks and if/then blocks to control the movement of their sprite. They have also created a ‘score’ variable to improve their game. Next they need to move their game on to the next levels, which they have created, but currently are not coded into the game.

This is Aleem and Ayaan’s. They have added in sound effects to their project:

Hadia and Hafsa have coded their sprite to move, now they need to think about how they can use if/then blocks to make the obstacles work.

LO: Can I create hyperlinks?

This week, years 3 and 4 will be learning that the internet is a non-linear place. This is technical way of saying you can go to anywhere, from anywhere depending on where you click. When you can click to get somewhere else, you are using something called a hyperlink.

Have a look at this Newsround page – how many different pages or websites can you get to from here and what can you find on them. Leave a comment below with anything interesting you have found on this page.

We will also learn how to create our own hyperlinks in Microsoft Word. To do this follow the steps below:

1. Open Word

2. Copy and paste the text from this post into Word:

3. To insert a hyperlink in Word:
– find the webpage you want to link to
– copy the URL (the address at the top, starting with http)
– then highlight the text you want to hyperlink in word
– click on go to the insert menu and choose hyperlink
– paste the URL into the ‘link to’ field
– click OK

4. Your challange is to insert hyperlinks into word to make the text ‘3 dimensional’. Watch the video at the bottom of this post to see an example.

Lemon and Herb – insert a hyperlink to a class blog
Mild – insert a hyperlink to a specific page on a class blog
Hot – link to multiple pages
Extra Hot – add your own text to link to other pages

The basic parts of a computer

Year 3 and 4 are learning about the basic parts of computers, and how there are different types of computers.

We will be using the learnfree.org website to learn about the different parts and then answering questions. You will be able to find the answers to all these questions on the website and on this video:

If you have time at the end of the lesson you can try the typing tutorial and the mouse tutorial.

Technology in our lives – Hyperlinks

Year 4 and 5 have been learning about hyperlinks and how to add them to a WordPress blog post. This is quite a simple process, but there are a few things to remember. Therefore I have recorded a short video showing how it’s done with a brief explanation of what a hyperlink is. This is the first video of this type that I have recorded, so I would welcome any feedback.
