Year 5 Computing – Scratch!

In Year 5 we have been building on our coding skills to produce algorithms that allow our sprites to speak!

We programmed the sprites using a forever loop and several blocks of code so that the output resulted in the sprite counting out loud using sound files that we recorded or sound effects from the Scratch library.

We experimented with a range of different sounds and chose the ones we thought worked best with our backgrounds and sprites.

How do you think we can develop our counting games further?

What jobs might we use programming skills in?
