Over this half term, the children have been using the program Scratch to develop their coding skills.  They began by learning about the main components – sprites, backdrops and programming blocks before having a go at creating code to make their sprite move. Once they had mastered this, they then added new sprites and created multiple codes so each sprite could move in a different way. Event blocks were then introduced, allowing children to explore the most appropriate way to start each program of code. The children later thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with sound and used code to create a sequence of commands to make an instrument play the second verse to the well known song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
