Scratch

Scratch is a fun way to make games with code for children to get into the habit of using codes.

Algorithms are like a order of things that you do when your making a cup of tea: fill the kettle with water, boil the kettle, get the cup out on the side, put the teabag in the cup, pour the water in to the mug, stir, take the teabag out, add sugar or mil if wanted.

Debugging is when you get the code wrong to how you want it, so you debug it by trying to figure out what you did wrong and to try to make it correct. I did this when i wanted my car to explode.

The car racing game went well I was able to make the cars move and make it a two player game.

The bad things that happened was that I could not find a way to make the car explode when it hit the green.

I enjoined scratch but I found it a bit difficult when i was watching the video of the old scratch.

 

George games

Scratch is were you make animations and video games by using code blocks,they are simple but you have to use them right or the game wont work, also in scratch you can post the games you have made. and play games that other people have made,and like them too.

algorithm is what you tell the computer to do and it will do it so if you say move ten steps on sprite 1 then it will move ten steps.

debugging is when there is a problem in the game it an be a big problem or a small problem in the code and you fix it. one time when i did this is when i  when i was making my helicopter game the helicopter was not changing costume and i had to fix it because it was really bugging me so i did hide costume and it worked the helicopter crashed! i did well on the movement of the helicopter and controlling it however, i need to add more cave for the heli copter and i think that will improve the game,also the animations of the helicopter crashing could improve.i like using scratch it is fun and it leads to your imaginatio of what you can do.

What is scratch?

Scratch is a website for people to learn how to create games and also teaches people how to use codes and to debug.

What are algorithms?

An algorithm is a process or set of rules to be followed codes or other problems(usually used with computers).

What is debugging and when did you do it?

debugging is when you’ve done something wrong in your code and then you correct it.I debugged when my parrots couldn’t disappear.

What did you do well?

I think my shooting parrots went really well because I wasn’t expecting it too actually work but it did.

What could you improve on?

I could improve by actually making the clock WORK.

Did you like using scratch?

Yes,I did like using scratch.

In the parrot shooter game the parrots reappear when you press a.

Reflection:

What is scratch ?

Scratch is a programming website, where you can make cool games and have fun playing them.

What are algorithms ?

Algorithms are patterns and codes which you use to make your character move about on the screen.

What is debugging and when do you do it ?

Debugging is when you have to replace and fix your mistake.When I made my bat shooting game, I had to use debugging to help  me fix the increase in score , because every bat I hit would be worth ten points, while I wanted every bat to only be five,so i had to go through my script over and over again before finding what i had done wrong.

What did you do well ?

I think i did my car game quite well because I had no debugging to do and I think it worked quite well.

What could you improve on ?

I think I could of made my car game more exciting by adding more details and adding another car .

Do you like using scratch ?

Yes! I do like using scratch. It’s really fun to use, cool to explore and  awesome making my own games.I also think that it was quite fun doing coding and i learnt new things from debugging.

what is scratch and what are algorhithms

 

Scratch is a website for making games from simple code.

Algorithms are lines of code used for websites and games.

Debugging is fixing code that isn’t working, I had to use it when my helicopter didn’t even touch the rocks.

I did well trying to debug my helicopter game

I could improve on my parrot shooter game by making it easier to hit the parrots

I liked using scratch because it is easy to code games

Reflection on scratch programming:

What is Scratch?

Scratch is website to help kids in school, like KINGS, to do code. You can make games and play games that other people made or maybe your own game.

What are Algorithms?

Algorithms are small bits of code that are used to make things move on the screen.

What is Debugging and when did you do it>

Debugging is when there is a mistake in the piece of code and you fix it, I had to debug many things in my code like in the race car game, it wont move properly, so i still have to debug the code.

What did you do well?

I think i done the game with 2 players very well because i fixed the code and it works like an actual game.

What could i improve on?

I think i can improve on  the car racing game because it’s  still work in progress.

Did you like using Scratch?

I did like using scratch because it helped me improve my Computing skills.

Morgan’s scratch projects



What is scratch?

Scratch is an online programming website ware you can make+view  fun games and animation.

What are  algorithms?

Algorithms are lines of code or instructions which tell the sprite what to do.

What is debugging and when did I do it?

Debugging is about finding what it wrong and  fixing it. I debugged my pong game a lot and still  did not find all the bugs and I am currently debugging my tank battle.

What did I do well?

I think I did especially well on my butterfly shooter so it has a you loose and you win screen.

What could I improve on?

I think I could improve on finding bugs and fixing them as I ran out of time trying to find the bugs in my pong game( if you play it I would recommend playing as p1 🙂 )

 

I  liked using scratch as it is a fun way to lean code and make games.

Abhay’s scratch project

what is scratch?

scratch is a coding website where you can make and view games made by different people. scratch allows you to code but you must get it right, otherwise your game will not work.

what are algorithms?

algorithms are sequences of code  that can make your character move around, make you win points and make win or lose

what is debugging and when did we do it

debugging is when you correct your mistakes in a algorithm.  we would do it every time we were finished with a certain part of our code.

what did I do well?

i think i did well with making my game so that 2 players can play and making the change of when a car goes of the track, the sprite will change its costume to an exploding car.

I could improve on …

I could improve on making my cars a bit more better looking and my cars turning ability is a bit rusty

Do I like scratch?

I really enjoyed using scratch and I hope I can use it in the future because it has helped me learn how to code. Scratch is a really  fun way of learning how to code . I do not really feel like I am in a lesson.

Ethan’s Scratch projects

Please enjoy my games! Sorry for any silly mistakes or bugs, if there are, leave it in the comment section and I will do my best to fix it!

What is scratch?

Scratch is a fun programming website that is used to make fun animations and games with no holds barred. It’s a new fun world of activities and coding and tasks.

What are algorithms?

Algorithms are sequences of code that make games, animations etc.

What is debugging?

Debugging is simply fixing code. For example, you want the monkey on the screen to run around in  circles, but instead he run in a straight line. Obviously, there is a bug in the code witch must be fixed. It is always in a certain part of a code.

What did I do well?

I believe that customized the sprites well and did a lot of debugging. I certainly spent a LIFE TIME on making the backdrop ” Fancy “.

What could be better…

I think that if I spent more time concentrating, I would have finished my game. Also I had to spend less time customizing the sprites and more on debugging and coding my game. I should have made better adjustments to the game instead of talking to the person next to me  or worrying that my game wouldn’t be good enough.

Do I like Scratch?

YES. definitely. The program made me look at coding from a WHOLE NEW  perspective. I found it really fun and it made me feel like I was just at home making games and not in an I.C.T lesson.

 

Francesca’s Scratch Project

 

 

What is scratch?

Scratch is a free website where  you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations and you can share them with other people in the online community.  you can also play other peoples games which they have coded.

What are algorithms?

A algorithm is a set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.

What is debugging and when do you do it?

Debugging is to  identify and remove errors from computer hardware or software. You debug when there is a “bug”(a mistake) in your code.

What did you do well?

I think that I did the coding well and debugging.

What could you improve on?

I could improve on the quality of my games and animations.

Did you like using Scratch?

I liked using Scratch because it was fun to learn new  algorithms.
