This half term the children are going to become games testers. They are going to play a series of games, mostly coded in Scratch, decide what’s good and what could be better. Using specific projects on the Scratch website they’ll have a chance to look at the code used to create the games, with a view to magpie-ing code they may want to use when designing their own games.
If you want to help, then discuss with your child what they look for in a good game. However, it mayl be a while before they’ll be ready to write code similar to those used in their favourite games...
