Year 4 Repetition in LOGO

In Year 4 the children have been focusing on using repetition. The children explored how using a repeat loop for repetition helped them to draw 2D shapes must faster. Instead of writing code for a square as below: fd 100 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 The children discovered that it is quicker to use repetition so to draw a square it would be: repeat 4 [fd 100 rt 90] The children then using penup and pendown programmed the turtle to draw various shapes on the page using repeat loops and flooding them with colour. They then investigated drawing different stars with different points .
