This term the children have enjoyed using Scratch, a programming software, to create their own game from ‘scratch’. Not only do they have to make their own sprites (characters) and backgrounds for their game, they have to include movement, avoid collisions, add sound, change costumes and much more. All They have used it to make a spaceship game and are now creating their own game linked to the tall ships project. They are exploring this piece of software by selecting the best code to use to ‘tell’ the computer what their sprite (character) should do when a certain key is pressed.
The class are looking forward to playing on the tall ship games which have been created by their friends.
