New Term, New Club – Lesson 41

Snack & Chat

Hi everyone, and welcome to the Computer Club at our School! We hope to be have some fun with robots later on in the year, but for this term we’re going to be learning how to code our own games, with Studio Code.

Computer Time

We’re going to start out in Studio Code with learning how we tell the Angry Bird to move, so that he can catch one of the Naughty Pigs.

Note for other Teachers

I’ve come the conclusion that I’m not going to be able to do Studio Code in the Club as I’d intended – I don’t have an assistant this year, and the kids need a bit more walking through the steps, and assistance in the ICT room than I’m able to give them at club time. They’re tired at the end of the day, and club needs to be more relaxed and playful – and less about formal lessons! Plus, the group I have ranges from 6 years old to 8 years old – the older ones can be thrown into Studio Code from the beginning and make their way, but I’m seeing quite a few of the youngest ones who just get confused without MUCH more scaffolding…

I’m going to work with our school teachers to look at bringing it into the curriculum, and we can add it to the range of activities that our Code Club for the older years covers.
