We have previously used 2Code in Purple Mash, explored some of the Code.org courses and activities – and lots more! Last week in a lesson with Computer Kat we decided to try some coding in Scratch to apply our developing skills, and computational thinking, in a new context.
Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and (if they choose to create an account and log in) share projects with people from all over the world. If you would like to explore Scratch some more at home, the site is free to use and can be used without logging in. You should always check with your parents or carers before you access any new sites at home – and in particular before making any accounts! If your parents or carers have questions, they can find out more about Scratch and the Scratch community, including the Privacy Notice and information about the community guidelines and expectations, here: https://scratch.mit.edu/parents/
At the end of the lesson we all agreed that we had found some of it hard, but that we had all learnt a lot!
