Scratch is probably the most effective and commonly used programming software used in Primary schools. If you haven’t come across Scratch, it is basically a visual programming language, used to easily create games, animations and simulations. The range of things that you can do with Scratch is truly amazing and provides an ideal stepping stone to the more advanced world of computer programming.
In Year 3, pupils today used Scratch to program an animation based on a their current topic ‘Nocturnal Animals’.
They have been shown the basics today and can show you too by visiting this link at home: https://scratch.mit.edu
