An activity I would do would be to work through the animating tutorial on Scratch. My 2/3s experimented with Scratch on the Ipads last year and it was a constant stream of "it won't do what I want". Hence, I would get them to experiment with animating their names by modelling and following the tutorial steps on Scratch. I would then have them do the same thing. I would probably have them plan it out beforehand for example, using paper, pens to show what their letters would look like, which ones they would one to get bigger, glide, change colour etc. …

I always blank out the names and use it as a teaching and learning opportunity rather than a telling off. I haven't had anything that is a serious breech yet as all students are aware that I check their site daily. There is also a…

Option 2 Describe a classroom activity that incorporates visual programming.

Year 5
Next year I would like to trial an activity which would allow an element of digital technology learning when working on Narrative writing in our literacy lessons. I already teach a series of lessons based on fractured fairy tales. I can see the potential to expand the idea further by allowing students to use the scratch characters to …
