Christmas Scratch Animated card

Christmas Scratch Animated card

This contains a starter where students are asked to ponder what makes an animated card interesting. The scripts are then given for learners to create a fully animated e-card. It includes moving snow, decorations that find their way to the tree, a star coming from the sky and landing on the tree. Baubles that flash, and a merry Christmas sign that lights up. Some features start automatically and others are interactive. This can be used from around age 7 right up to year 11! Everyone loves a Christmas theme! The lesson ends with a bronze, silver gold worksheet which allows differentiation from a cloze key word task, to considering real life uses, and ends with Blooms evaluative task for more able learners. There is also a homework / extended learning task available. Two learning walks have been rated outstanding with this lesson.

Caesar Cipher Christmas Activity Coding Decode With Wheel and Answers

Caesar Cipher Christmas Activity Coding Decode With Wheel and Answers

Caesar Cipher Christmas Activity Coding Decode With Wheel and Answers. A fun end of term activity, with a mathematical approach. Could children create their own once they have finished? Both PDF file and editable word doc :) Enjoy, and please remember to leave feedback. I like to know what you think about my resources and what I could improve on in the future. Thank you!

Interactive reveal quiz template

Interactive reveal quiz template

This is an interactive PowerPoint template that allows people to create reveal quizzes with scoring - it uses macros and so sadly will only work on PCs and they need to be enabled when the PowerPoint is run. A sample quiz of famous landmarks is included to demonstrate how it works. When using the template add pictures to the PowerPoint slides and then cover these pictures with autoshapes (rectangles, ovals, stars etc) and for each covering shape type on a points value - the more important what the shape covers the higher the number of points. Instructions are given on slide 3 too. This is the first version of this template so please send me constructive feedback, including ways it can be enhanced.

Follow me!  Chamak dances, Scratch 38 slide activity for primary

Follow me! Chamak dances, Scratch 38 slide activity for primary

Part of the follow me range, designed for younger learners, non-readers, or EAL pupils. The learners are able to follow the circles on a slide show to code a lady dancing to a guitar. Skills built in this: adding stage adding and editing sprites changing costumes adding music changing beats to suit using a forever loop using delays There are two certificates to be gained in this very engaging lesson(s) This resource could be used by an independent learner, or by a teacher going through the slide in turn. It's real strength though is with non specialists, helping those who are unable, or unwilling to read. The lesson is very visual, and the audio also makes it engaging.

Follow me!  Scratch crazy monsters for EAL or very low ability

Follow me! Scratch crazy monsters for EAL or very low ability

I have created this resource to take the child through adding a sprite, a stage, colour change, music loops, speech, and movement. The theme is crazy monsters, as they are in the disco, you will see the delight when they can have a highly interactive monster change colour and play music loops. There is very little text on the screen, designed for the very young, or those who have English as a second language. They just follow the circles on each slide to add to the coding. There are 36 slides, with a certificate for the basics, then extension work for faster learners. You won't be sorry you bought this idea and activity as you see their engagement and delight.

Computational thinking presentation - getting pupils to think how a computer thinks!

Computational thinking presentation - getting pupils to think how a computer thinks!

This is a 17 slide powerpoint which contains everything to explain a widely used computer programming concept in simple language and give examples of how it can be used. The lesson doesn’t require any coding so doesn’t need to be run through with computers. It includes some questions to check the pupils’ understanding and a short exercise at the end. Some of the later slides could be removed to make it more suitable for younger children. The presentation covers: what is coding, what is an if statement, how to structure an if statement, examples of if statements in normal language, examples in Scratch programming language, using if then else statements and using if then else with many options (nested if statements).
