Computing Year 9 Home Learning

Week Commencing 01/06/2020

Learning Activities / Web Links / Worksheets

|The focus of this week's learning is going to be on Internet Safety. We have done lots of work on this in Computing so hopefully you will be confident with the activities.


First, have a go at the Internet Safety crossword below - you could print the sheet off or record your answers on paper or even email them to me to save some paper!

When you have completed the crossword, see if you can think about the different ways that you use the internet. This is called your "digital footprint" - have a go at recording the different ways you use the internet on the footprint below. Make sure to include text and some pictures too!


(examples of ways you use the internet may include - gaming, YouTube, social media, researching)

Have a go at the Hour of Code activity above.


Use the videos and follow the instructions carefully to make your way through the task.


Programming often requires a trial and error approach.


If your code doesn't work the first time, try changing blocks to see where you have gone wrong.

Minecraft Hour of Code

You might find it helpful to write down the instructions you want to use before programming them in.


This will help you to spot any "bugs" in your code.
