Year 3 Computing Homework - Children are to login to their USO account (usernames and passwords should be known off by heart by now, if not it is stuck in their homework book) and continue work done in school with Mrs Quinlivan. The children should use the 'J2e Code' app on the Yr3 tab and have a go at inserting a background sprite and a bat sprite - which is a continuation of what they have done in their computing lesson. Please save this work as your initials (not name). Once this is done, children may wish to explore the commands to create their own algorithm. Mrs Quinlivan will be available for the children during all of Monday lunch time in the computer suite for any support on this homework.
