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!
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
In computing this half term we are writing a maths quiz for Year 1 & 2.
Further up the school we have mymaths.co.uk and TimesTable Rockstars to help us so we are going to write a program that helps Year 1 & 2 learn number bonds to 10 or 100 or maybe even… number facts!
It’s time to make our Talk to me start to react to user input – Shaking!
Re load your APP from last week – 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.
Yes you can!
Remember use Google Chrome – You may have to enable flash player to work… Don’t be tempted to skip a level they will teach you useful tips for later in the challenge. Can you get the furthest?
