Class 4 are beginning to look at the basics of coding through the use of an app called Swift Playgrounds. Playgrounds uses a text-based coding language (created by Apple – and widely used in the programming of many apps) called “Swift”. More info on Swift Playgrounds can be found here: https://www.apple.com/uk/swift/playgrounds/
So far, we have looked at using and sequencing simple commands to create simple algorithms (step-by-step instructions to resolve a given problem), debugging (finding and correcting errors) simple algorithms and creating functions (combining multiple commands) to improve the efficiency in which we are coding.
Here is a video showing some of Class 4’s coding in action:
