Autumn 1 - We are Astronauts
For the Autumn term, the Year 2 children completed the unit ‘We are astronauts’. For this unit the children were introduced to the computer program ‘ScratchJr’ which enabled them to constructs several simplistic programs based around a space theme. At the beginning of this unit, the children were able to modify and change avatar sprites and the background of their programme’s setting. This progressed into understanding how to program a sprite to move to a certain location and message passing and input. Finally, the children were able to edit the appearance of their created programmes by changing the colour of their sprites and background.
