Which game is best?

Standard

You be the judge…

Year 5 created games exactly like you did in year 5, however I learned lots from teaching you so that I could improve what I taught to make the games even better.

Please play each of the games and let me know 3 stars and a wish (3 good things, 1 that could be improved about each one) in the comment sections below.

 

Talk to me!

Standard

We will be doing more on the Talk to Me APP using

APP Inventor

The video below will remind us what to do!

If you can add one button…  Can you add more?  Can you get it to say lots of things?

Have you managed to change the background? Button colours?  Layout?  Text style?

Remember using Google Chrome works the best, but we may need to enable the flash player.

Hour of Code

Standard

As a school we are really taking a full part in the Hour of Code week which started on Monday, today it is your turn in Year 6 to having a go at coding 🙂 

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

Today you will need some maths skills in either program you pick.

Best of luck

As you are in Year 6, I have allowed you to pick from two challenges, Frozen or Artist, both are similar however I prefer Frozen as there are some very useful tutorials – You might even like to do Frozen at school and then try artist at home!
