Codebreakers Week

This week saw us delve into to the world of computer programming.

The children needed to use all their knowledge and coding skills to complete challenges set for their class both on and off devices.

On the chromebooks…

Key Stage 1 took on a maze challenge, where they had to programme a set of directional instructions to navigate their character through progressively more complicated mazes. Some even got onto designing and creating their own mazes to challenge their friends with!

Year 3 and 4 used drag and drop programming to create their own versions of the popular ‘Flappy Bird’ game, changing design elements and control functions along the way. I think my favourite was ‘swimmy shark’!

Year 5 and 6 children built their very own 3D Mario game, while learning the basics of programming. They learned about the fundamentals of game development; formed an understanding of motion in 3D space and learned to add scores, lives and cool sound effects to their game.

Year 5 also created some amazing animated poems.
