Scratch - coding a game

Date: 27th Sep 2017 @ 8:55pm

Today we started a project!  Over the next couple of weeks the children are going to create a simple game where a car moves around a track.  Today we looked at a finished game and broke it down, making a list of what jobs we will need to do to make it work.

Chidlren were then taught the skills of programing an object to move when the arrow keys are pressed, and how to create a custom-background.  They were given time to practise these skills so that we can use them to begin our games next time.

Just in case they want to have a go at home, here is the code we used today.
