From the CODE IT website, we played the Tables Bubble Game in Scratch. Using a Decompostion Planner, we then decomposed the game in order to work out how to actually program the game. We then using our planner created our own version of the game.

Year 6 have been programming physical systems. They have explored programming an emulator of CodeBug and then the real external device itself.
Below are images of the CodeBug Emulator and CodeBug External Device
CodeBug provides a fun and engaging way to build interactive devices. It is the perfect starting point to the world of electronics and computing.
They first programmed a scrolling name badge, followed by a sequence of animated pictures and then used Code Bug to investigate which objects conducted heat. Here are some screen shots of their programming.
Safety Snakes provides an excellent way for young pupils to learn about good and unwise online behaviours. As they make their way around the game board, they will land on squares providing details of different types of online scenarios. Good scenarios are placed at the bottom of ladders, so pupils are rewarded with a lift onto a higher square when they land there.
Year 1 had to plan out their direction algorithms they were going to need first before testing it on the Bee Bot. Some ‘debugging’ was required.
Henry in Year 5 completed all stages in the Star Wars Hour of Code Activity. He then went on to code his own game with a Star Wars theme. Well done Henry. Please see and play his game here:
In Year 2 we have been practising our keyboard and typing skills. We have been using two hands and making sure we sit correctly at the computer. We have been looking at the home row, using the space bar with our thumbs and different keys like the shift and enter keys.
We then looked at formatting text to make it look more interesting to the audience. Below is work from the Gruffalo which Year 2 formatted to make more interesting.
Work is from Erin and Alma, Ettie and Chloe, Freddie and Hamish, Poppy and Emily and Sidney.
