We have started learning how to use SCRATCH computer programming in school. The children will be learning new skills each week. So far they can change, add and delete sprites, change the sprite costume, add a background and give motion commands.
If you would like your child to practise their skills at home you can download SCRATCH for free. Here are the instructions.
1. Type 'Dowload Scratch 2.0' into Google.
2. Select the option 'Scratch 2 offline editor MIT'
3. This will open a webpage page with installation instructions. Follow the instructions appropriate to your PC or Mac.
4. If you have any questions please let me know!
