Scratch Syllabus Safe Internet Webdesign Animation software

Scratch Programming language -

 Years 3-6 now their own Scratch Account. The usernames range from roselyon1 to roselyon30. The password is roselyon (all lower case). Children can of course create their own accounts. To access accounts children need to log into Scratch    Your children can now finish projects at home started at school. If your Internet connection is dodgy then Scratch can be downloaded to work offline. This does  need Adobe Air and Adobe Flash Player and so cannot be run on tablets.  Scratch 3 is coming in January and will run on tablets. Children can use Scratch online without an account…simply click the Create button.

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-but I changed the song content…sorry! Roselyon as paid into a music copyright scheme but your children must not publish their own versions on their accounts.

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-(sorry Dan- Your underwater Shopping Mall had me crying with laughter though!)

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!

Tables Tester

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- a Windows 3.1 maths game where correct answers allow you to rescue Henrietta and incorrect answers…

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

Online Tests

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-maths game 2018

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-and the best.

Thanks to Joel M and Jonny for this version.

SeaLife Quiz

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.

Pong 2017

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-maths game 2018

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.  

Copper Mining

Year 5 and 6 are designing their own presentation to show how copper ore is extracted from Morwellham Quay-prior to our trip. This program was designed by Tom two years ago. I was impressed by Leighton who designed a show to show what happened when a mine collapsed.

Crystal 2018

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.
