This week we are going to be practising joining from the letter f. At the top of the first image, it models an example of what your join should be like from the letter f. Use the first image to practise your f join. Use the lines in your book or on your paper to draw your letters the correct shape and size.

LO: To understand that the floor turtle commands can be used in an on-screen program.


Have a look at the beebot in the picture above – can you remember using these in KS1?

Can you remember how to make a square? A rectangle?



The arrow is like the beebot but we have to code it to move.


There is a tutorial video in the top right corner - it has a black square with a green arrow in it. Please watch this to learn about the different commands.


Today I would like you to try and make some shapes. The commands to make a square are shown below.

Now have a go at changing the background and pen colour.


Can you make another square a different size to your first one?


Experiment with the commands to identify what other shapes you can create. Have fun! wink
