(show: applying)

Success criteria:

1. I can show how the orientation is formed

2. I can demonstrate how to write a relevant quote

3. I can use the correct level of formality

 

Task: Today you are going to turn Roald Amundsen’s polar expedition into a newspaper article. Imagine you are writing your newspaper story at the time (December 1911) and you are reporting on the fact he is the first person to reach the South Pole, remember this was a phenomenal achievement and should be reported as such.

2 studio sessions and 2 sound checks before you go onto garage. Don’t forget you can challenge me and I will be challenging you too!

2:00-3:00

Computing

 LO- To understand how to programme using scratch

Success criteria

1.         I can draw a background using blocks to make a maze.

2.         I can select and change a character (sprite).

3.         I can program commands that control the movement of a sprite.

4.         I can program consequences for specific actions.

 

Click the link below to access the game and play this for a short time to understand this. The aim of the game is to reach the green exit without touching the obstacle.

https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/57805794/

Once you have played this consider the questions:

•          How does the user make the character move?

•          What happens if a red obstacle is touched?

•          What happens when the green exit is reached?

 

Now watch my tutorial to understand how to make a maze game. You can watch the tutorial the whole way through or pause when suggested and work alongside the video. I have added the coding used for the game as a resource to download if you need some extra help.
