Algorithms

In Year 3 and 4 we have been learning all about algorithms and how to use them when creating our own games.

To apply our skills and knowledge, we’ve been using an app on the iPads called Hopscotch (Free, if you want to try it at home!).

 

First we learnt how to control characters on the screen to create shapes and patterns, then we learnt how to make characters interact with each other. It was so much fun!

 

Finally, we programmed our own game, where we used the iPad’s tilt function to control a character and navigate it through obstacles.

We really enjoyed this and we have learnt some fantastic problem solving skills as well!
