This half term in computing we are going to write (program) a game… But what sort? Play the games below before as a class we have a vote to decide!
Memory Game – Simon.
More traditional style of racing game – needs work!
Car racing from above
Two player racing game.
Remember good programmers will have listed the instructions in the box – so before you ask Mr Connolly – READ!
In year 6, we have a wealth of different talents. This cake was baked by Zara in 6H and it was amazing! Those lucky enough to try this masterpiece were blown away. Well done Zara!
We have come to the end of our incredible topic World War 2 and have finished reading Letters from the Lighthouse. We thoroughly enjoyed reading this great book and have completed some great book reviews.
What was your favourite part of the story and why?
This morning, we got creative in creating a class winter poem. We chose appropriate adjectives for our nouns and similes to add detail.
Can you share an example?
Here are your spelling words for this week. Make sure you go home and practise them!
If you enjoyed your hour of code program… Why don’t you give this one a try at home. It builds upon what you did in class.
As a school we are really taking a full part in the Hour of Code week. I am expecting that Year 6 will definitely be enthusiastic about the challenge and you can apply the skills you learned last year when you wrote your own Scratch Game, but this time you will be using a text based language called Python!
As we learned last year you don’t always manage to get your program right first time so one part of BEST you really need to do in coding is S – stick at it! Before you ask your teacher for help there is a lot you can do for yourself – the VIRTUAL STUCK STATION!
The program will give you help so use them! Also if your code is wrong the computer will give you hints so you know what you are missing!
Best of luck
The Code Master!
Take me to the challenge
