Computing home learning:

Hi Year 1, 

This week, I want you to think about how we can tell computers what to do. The "language" they use is called code, and there are lots of different types. It tells the computer what to do, when different keys are pressed. Here's a link to BBC Bitesize; watch the video and have a go at the game to learn more about what code is and what things can be programmed. Have fun!
