This resource has been used to give to parents at open evenings. Our student pick their options in year 8 so this has been used with that year group but could be given to other groups. It just shows the different sites that can be used for programming.

Scratch: Challenges with Drawing Using Iteration (Loops)

Scratch: Challenges with Drawing Using Iteration (Loops)

Year 7: The three challenges are graduated in difficulty, challenge 1 being the easiest. These can be used as one off exercises or as a pupil choice for a differentiated approach. Delivery can be set as individual work or 'buddies'/peer-to-peer. Putting them in pairs for this exercise does work well in my experience. The outcomes can feed into a plenary to go over the steps involved in the construction of the shape. It lends nicely to a discussion of the mathematics involved in the angles used to draw the pattern in each challenge.

Computer Game Design Template

Computer Game Design Template

Context: I used this with Year 7 and had them use the template to complete their game design before going near Scratch to start it. It offers focus, is a great way to get feedback to them and the template can be set as homework. Use: The template itself is structured and can assist the teacher in delivering the scaffolding, support and guidance as well as the instructions for completion. On completion each pupil has an effective roadmap for their coding which helps to keep them focused and on track. The coding challenges they then overcome are tailored to their specific game idea. The teacher has a means to give feedback on the plan which helps the pupil to hone their ideas. Designed for Scratch - can be altered for other blockly languages.
