In the past few days, Year 6 Eagles have become game developers by planning, developing and then testing their games. The children then designed front covers for their games with an online safety PEGI rating provided for the game.
The games were created in Kodu.
Once completed, the children started to create front covers for their games including key elements, age rating, description, title and screenshots.
During Computing today with Mr Baddhan, Year 6 started to look at the ‘If Else’ blocks and how they can be used in a gaming scenario. The example the children used was a variable as a points score – every time a question was answered correctly, the variable would change by one point. And if the question was answered incorrectly, then the a message would appear incorrect answer.
A variable is a data block which tells the program this will change once programmed.
