Year 4 – Scratch – Block Based Programming

Year 4 have been learning about selection and how to use it within their programs in Scratch.  The children were asked to predict the behaviour of algorithms using the selection command.  They then tested the programs to see if their predictions were correct to play the different games. Year 4 then using selection created a Ping Pong Game and a Maths Quiz.

Year 1 – Tinkering with Bee Bots

Year 1 have been exploring programming the Bee Bots. They write algorithms to program the Bee Bot up and down lines and around shapes. They had fun playing The Snakes and Ladders Online Safety Game from Barefoot Computing.  Sometimes, the Bee Bot didn’t do what they thought it should do and so had to do some debugging to fix it.

Year 5 Physical Computing – Crumble Boards

Year 5 have been exploring programming the Crumble Board. They have been using Sparkles and Sparkle Batons to light on and off. We then designed our own pictures and programs to light the pictures. We are next going to make an animated box using servos and design a car bot to race.
