Hi Year 4, 

Do you remember when we were creating some great projects using code? Today I've got a great challenge for you, involving j2code, visual. Click on the link to access it. I would like you to add 3 sprites and make them move across the screen. Watch the video I have made (on Deanesfield’s Youtube channel) to see how I did it. You do not need to sign in, so it doesn't matter if you cannot remember your login.

Have fun!

Revise your Treble Clef notes and then have a go at playing this tune (attached file - Ode to Joy) on the virtual piano! If you have a real piano/keyboard/glockenspiel at home, try to use that as well.
