Year 5 and 6 @ The Word

Class 1 Visit to The Word

Class 1 visited [email protected] Word in South Shields on Wednesday 2nd February.

The children completed a unit of work where they created their own game. They used an online programme called Scratch to perform a range of skills linked to coding:

  • design and change characters for games
  • select backgrounds and sounds to fit with a theme
  • create code to make characters move and follow instructions
  • Β write informative instructions for their game so that other people can play it
  • evaluate my their own and peers’ games to help improve their design for the future.

The children had a great day and they managed to produce a simple game linked to our English topic of Greek Myths.
