CodeClub – 27th January 2020

Who you gonna call??? GHOSTBUSTERS!!!!!!!

Our Scratch Activity this week is making a ghost catching game, which introduces Loops and Variables!

Our Python coders will be programming the Raspberry Pi SenseHat, and learning more about the Python language.

CodeClub – 20th January 2020

This week we’re going to make a Space game in Scratch! We’ll be animating spaceships and moving them around the screen!

For our Python coders, we’ll be starting learning to use Python and getting used to typing in programs rather than using code blocks to program.

CodeClub – 25th March 2019

A relaxed session today as it’s just before the Easter holidays!

This week, we’ll be looking at the Boat Race game again from last week, and also doing some 3D printing, and programming a Drone using Scratch!!

As it’s the last session before the holidays, we’ll also have some games on the Nintendo Switch to play for some relaxation!

CodeClub – 4th March

NB – THERE IS NO CODE CLUB NEXT WEEK (the 11th March).

Today we’ll be making our own art program in Scratch, working on the “Paint Box” activity and looking at Loops, and IF – Else statements.

We’ll also be continuing to work on our Raspberry Pi submission in Python for the Mission Zero project to get our program loaded on the Raspberry Pi on the International Space Station!

Code Club – 18th Feb, 2019

Welcome back to Code Club after the mid-term break! This week we’ll be working on input and output with scratch, building a chatbot! And for those students looking at Python and the SenseHat we’ll be learning how to display the temperature and pressure, and look at displaying graphics.

The Scratch Activity can be found here: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/chatbot

And for Python, here’s two handy cheatsheets for the SenseHat and the Python language itself:

21st Jan – Week 2 Activites

Welcome back! Last week we checked that Scratch was working on the school laptops (not always a given!), and we made our first scratch program! This week we’re going to add animation with the “Lost in Space” activity!

Scratch 3.0:

We’ll also be looking at programming the SenseHat on the RaspberryPi using Python – ready for our Mission Zero project submission where our programs will run on the Space Station!

14th Jan – Week 1 Activities

Welcome to Code Club!

Today we’re going to be checking everyone can get logged into the laptops, we’ll have an introduction to Scratch 3.0, and we’ll try a Scratch activity!  Python programmers can also get started with the Raspberry Pi.
