We have been developing our programming skills and our ability to read, change and create strings of code. We have made the letters of our names spin, sing and rotate, a racing game for 2 players and a pong style game. Our final session focuses on taking classic games like snake, frogger and pacman and altering the code in order to cheat!
Ffion's Race Game.mp4
In this game you have a purple car that moves around the track at different speeds.The car moves around the track at different speeds. The speed is controlled by the numbers on the keyboard 1-5 (5 is the fastest) which is programmed into the scratch script. The car is controlled using the up,down,left and right arrow keys. The aim of this game is to reach the finishing line without hitting the green grass. If you hit the green grass you will get bounced back. When you cross the finishing line the script is coded to give the player 1 lap point.

Using the Scetchup computer software package the children have been able to enhance their computing skills in design. They have had the free time to explore how this brilliant computer design package works and using these new skills, and their imagination, have been able to re-create a part of the school building or grounds that they had photographed.
The children have been able to enhance their computer and music skills by exploring two different software packages called Isle of Tune and Incredibox.
Both packages enable children to compose their own piece of music but in different ways.
