Scratch Programming language -
Enjoy Highlights of 2017/2018’s Projects by clicking on the images below.
Roselyon Paint 2017
Year 5 were tasked with designing a Paint App which could be used by our younger children. I think that their solution rivals Microsoft Paint!
Greek Myths 2017
Year 5 and 6 were tasked with each retelling a Greek Myth. They first had to locate a youtube video which they added to our History website. This link tells the Myth of Icarus and Daedalus.
Pattern Music Website 2017
All of our children are encouraged to design their own patterns using Maths sequences. We then used these as a backdrop to a music website. I selected this pattern from one of our year 6 pupils-
Fish Game 2017
Year 3 are encouraged to design simple games such as keeping a fish away from a shark. I asked Year 5 to further develop this game…this version is not the most most complicated-
Space Invaders 2017
The children were shown a Youtube video of this great Arcade game and tasked with replicating it. Tom was first to come up with a way to keep multiple invaders descending together.
Grid Reference Tester 1983
Over thirty years ago I taught Apple Basic and then BBC Basic to the children. We coded a program to test 6 figure grid references…and sold it to a software company for £200! Our of intellectual curiosity I attempted to use Scratch to replicate the quiz so that our current children could learn 4 figure grid references. Enjoy!
This simple program was my first attempt at using Scratch for coding. In 2018 the children will be developing this game on the lines of Horrah for Henrietta-
Shoot The Ghost 2017
Here is another example of one of the games that I use to teach Year 3 about some of the more advanced features of Scratch.
Links to Children’s Sites
Many of our children design and upload their own games. Here is a link to Alec’s site. Alec now runs the computer Coding Club at Roseland School
Most coding involves using multiple programs. The Rocket website provides links to 7 online tests in Science and History. This is the first one we wrote. Emma worked on the PowerPointslides. Alec wrote the coding for the test.
Racing Game 2017
Many of the children upload their games to the Roselyon Scratch Site. Here is a link to Jobey’s Racing Car Game.
Link to use Scratch online or to create a Scratch account.
Interactive Story 2018
All of our children wrote their own interactive stories. Here is my version!
Hoorah for Henrietta-
As our children improve their coding my aim is to use their skills to rewrite the earliest computer games…and this was basically the first ever educational game-
Thanks to Joel M and Jonny for this version.
Year 5’s latest quiz 2018
Writing this involved using the Internet to research the questions, PowerPoint to create the slides and Scratch to run the Quiz. We will be adding sound effects using Audacity. The authors of Scratch have done a brilliant job of creating compatibility with just about every other program.
Space Defence 2017
A great shoot em up game…Your job is to hit the meteorites before they destroy our planet. I do need a maths boffin to convert the accuracy into a percentage!
Ancient Egypt Quiz 2018
The questions were compiled by Year 3. The children take this test at the end of their studies into Ancient Egypt.
Habitat Game 2018
Year 3 coded this game (Summer 2018) and adding their own habitats and comments.
Colin is trying to find the best habitat for the camel. This version is largely the work of Dylan.
This was the first computer game I ever played. I challenged Year 6 to rewrite it using Scratch.
This was Tom’s version. I added the instructions.
Healthy Eating Game 2018
Year 3 and 4 coded this game as part of our studies into healthy eating. Thanks to Joel Cutler for sorting out the bugs which we were enable to fix!
Hoorah for Henrietta-
This is the ultimate Maths revision game. A huge thanks to Joel C for who remixed our original game.
Random Limericks 2018
Nobody teaches rhyming poetry any more and so Years 5 and 6 have been learning the Mr F method! Year 6 were tasked with getting a Scratch character to write a limerick based on the name of a peer or friend. I went one step further. Each time you click the computer will generate a random poem.
Year 5 and 6 are designing their own presentation to show how copper ore is extracted from Morwellham Quay-
Prep 3 Each Scratch lesson Year 3 tell me what game they would like to design. Crystal told the class that she wanted her name to do brilliant things. The class all worked on their own ideas which I then combined.
