Year 6: Scratch Programming

As part of our Year 6 computing milestones, we have been looking at Coding. (Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer to behave how you want it to. Every line of code tells the computer to do something, and a document full of lines of code is called a script.) We have been using Scratch to create a simple drawing game. We have been learning about various conditions and for example; combining the use of pens with movement to create interesting effects. The children have amazed us with how quick they can write algorithms and their growing knowledge and confidence in scripting various programs.
