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.

what is scratch?

scratch is a great programming website that anyone can use. On scratch you can code your own games or play other peoples games that they have created.

what are algorithms?

algorithms are bits of code that you use to make your characters move about the space on the screen.

what is debugging and when did you do it?

debugging is when a piece of code keeps on glitching  because you have gone wrong while coding and to make it right you have to correct it by putting in the right piece of code. I had to debug my ball because i did not put in the right code and did not realize so i had to go back to the instructions and figure out what i had done.

what did you do well?

i think my pong game went well because i completed it in not a very long time and it worked  fine and i did not have to do much debugging.

what could you improve on?

i could of added different colors to my game when i had finished because i had plenty of time to do so and i could of made the paddles different and make it look more modern.

did you like using scratch?

i enjoyed using scratch and found it very cool to play i like the fact that it is easy and that you can make so many games and  there is also a wide selection of characters that have different positions so you can pick your favorite one.

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a programming  website that anyone can use. On Scratch you code your own games but you can also publish them which allows other people to watch/play your game. You can also play other peoples games.

What are Algorithms?

Algorithms are bits of code in a sequence, like instructions, that you coded game/movie follow. They use loops and other bits of code like that.

What is debugging and when did I do it?

Debugging is when you fix a bit of code that has gone wrong, you basically delete a ‘bug’ in you code. I debugged my ‘start’ and ‘end’ pages while making my game.

What did I do well?

I think that my car game went quite well, I especially think that (once they started working) my start and end pages worked very well. I also think that my code was good and improving.

What could I improve on?

I think that I could improve my work by making the background a bit prettier and adding more to my start and end screens.

Did I like using Scratch?

I really liked Scratch because you make amazing games and have a-lot of fun in process. I also like Scratch because its not really like any other coding website I’ve used before.
