Computer Workshop with Mr Smith Friday 10th January

Class 2 enjoyed a workshop with Mr Smith on Friday afternoon. He introduced the children to a robot called cubetto and how to program it. They set themselves challenges to program cubetto and the beebot to travel on a grid mat to particular squares or move objects. The children then used the scratch junior app on the ipads to program a screen sprite to move. Firstly the children were challenged to select a Savana background and appropriate sprite to produce a realistic Savana scene. Once they had produced the scene they were challenged to program the Screen sprite to move. The scratch junior app is free to download onto a tablet, why not have a go at home.
