What game do we want to make?


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.

On Scratch!


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!





Hour of Code.


Hour of code

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
