How to get started with running a Scratch programming class - basics

How to get started with running a Scratch programming class - basics

This is a 3 page .pdf guide to help teachers who are new to running Scratch coding classes. It covers: timing, tips when following a project or steps, how to install or open scratch to start coding, how to start a new Scratch project, how to save a project, how to open a previously saved project, and different versions of scratch. I have also added a one-slide powerpoint which you can display on the board which sets some rules for your students before the class begins.

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 ("instructions for computers"), 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).

Powerpoint and exercises explaining  Coding, it's uses, and Scratch - what are they?!

Powerpoint and exercises explaining Coding, it's uses, and Scratch - what are they?!

This is a very simple 14 page / slide presentation to explain what coding and code is, along with a brief overview of Scratch. I find that often the children I teach have used Scratch before in class but don't always understand what code is for. For older children you could also talk about how code can be used in negative ways such as when ransomware or virus attacks are in the news ( example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WannaCry_ransomware_attack). I have also included some questions within the slides to check the children's understanding and an idea for a follow up exercise. I have attached the files in powerpoint 2016, older version of powerpoint compatible (97 -2003) and also saved the slides as a .pdf in case you don't have powerpoint.

Cities of the British Isles - Fact File Project for Geography & Information Technology

Cities of the British Isles - Fact File Project for Geography & Information Technology

British Cities Fact File Challenge This project offers a research opportunity to find out more about the cities of Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool and London. The resource is aimed at children from Years 5 to Year 9 and it provides an opportunity to combine Information Technology with Geography. It is an ideal opportunity to use a presentation to introduce the topic of British Cities. This can be extended to perhaps 4 introductory lessons with a collection of smaller challenges. After an initial introduction the students can then gather their own selected information about all ten of the cities included in the study. At the end of the project they should have a document consisting of 10 fact files and a much better knowledge of cities in both the United Kingdom and The Republic of Ireland.

Computing Terms Beginning with F Wordsearch ICT Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Computing Terms Beginning with F Wordsearch ICT Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Computing Terms Beginning with F'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Scratch Hour of Code Vocabulary Jeopardy Game

Scratch Hour of Code Vocabulary Jeopardy Game

This fun and engaging Jeopardy Style Game is the perfect way to bond with your class all year long and learn scratch. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game came be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
