The Year 3 and 4 lunchtime Code Club has been writing their own obstacle games where they have to jump over various objects to survive!
The odd part is having a one character walking but staying still while everything else on the screen rushes towards them. They are doing really well and getting some great code written!
Last term we were learning about shapes. We explored both 2D and 3D shapes. We talked, wrote about, drew and cut out our favorite 2D shapes. We also made some huge 3D shapes. We looked at how many faces, vertices and edges each 3D shape has.
We were also busy building imaginary towers, houses, train stations and many more using 3D shapes with our friends.
It was last term when Olive Class had a go at using the ICT room for the first time. We all listened to the teacher’s instructions and were able to play some computer games, listen to some music and drew some pictures using the mouse and the keyboard. We all had lots of fun!
Year 3 and 4 Code Club have been creating amazing musical islands using the brilliant and fun app, Isle of Tune. We have been creating road networks surrounded by musical trees and flowers as well as lampposts that play beats and houses that squeak, bark and bleep. We placed cars on the road that play the tune we have coded as they drive by.
In Hemlock class we’ve been writing and typing our scripts with our group or partner.
We made Anderson shelter animations; we made characters for it.
Our class made World War Two Anderson and Morrison shelters with cardboard, paper, tissue paper and many more.
Our movies are silent films.

The Year 5 and 6 Computing Club made their first fantastic steps into physical computing today. They have been learning brilliantly and are already experts at transferring cables from a normal PC to our special Raspberry Pi computers. Today, we learnt to create an LED circuit with a breadboard, jumper cables and a resistor all powered by our Raspberry Pi computers. Today an LED… tomorrow the world!
Year 3 and 4 computing club have been working on making a player controlled character avoiding a computer-controlled sprite. Day 1 and we’re whizzing along!
Last week, Y6 Hemlock had been going to the ICT room to code a game (Flappy Bird). They had to use their creative knowledge to code the player to go through the obstacles and win points.
You could alter the speed, size of obstacles, backgrounds and characters.
Once you had worked on the game, gradually your mind-set for coding grew. When you had finished you could play other people’s games and try them out.
Try now! Play one of our games:

We had great fun today manipulating HTML code to produce our own amazing comics.
We learned how to copy people, move them around using x and y co-ordinates, change colours, text and so much more. There just isn’t enough time in a lesson!
Have a look at our amazing coding skills.
