Senior Room starting to "Scratch"!

Senior Room Students in Cloughfin N.S. are embracing Scratch this week and are really enjoying it!

So What is Scratch?

"Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively."

Bit by bit, pupils are being introduced to this wonderful programming language and through collaborative learning and creative thinking are beginning to create their own animations. Ms. Farry has added a new page to the website which contains some tips and our first scripts. We will be adding more to this page over the next few weeks, so watch this space!
Caitlin, in 6th class, was the first to have her script added - great for a first attempt!!
