Blencathra Class - Repetition in Shape using Microsoft Windows Logo
Blencathra Class have been coding using Microsoft Windows Logo. They wrote their initials on a whiteboard and then recorded their algorithms, thinking about each step that was needed. Once they had recorded their algorithms, they used these on the Logo software to see if they worked correctly. If they hadn’t, they then amended and corrected their algorithms.
