Itchy Bytes: Scratch Starters!

My new “Delve in, for twelve min!” video features three new Scratch projects (Which you can download for free from TES here: Itchy Bytes: Quick Starters, Lessons, Plenaries in coding), designed as starters, plenaries, or you could even stretch them out into a full lesson. 

As the Autumn term draws to an end, I’ve found these particularly helpful when pupils need a short activity (you know, for when you’re waiting to be called to the hall for their part in the Christmas Production??). Each project reinforces the concepts of sequence, selection and repetition, whilst encouraging them to thing logically and predict/test what each block of code does. AND they’re really fun.

Watch the video for a demonstration…

Give them a try, let me know how you get on!
