Scratch Maths Quiz Selection

  • Age: 7-11 years
  • Concepts / Approaches: Debugging, Collaborating, Selection, Programming
  • Curriculum Links: Maths

Pupils create a maths quiz in Scratch and learn about selection which, in this activity, allows the flow of the program to be altered depending on the player’s answers to questions. Initially pupils will use an ‘If… then…’ selection command, before moving on to using an ‘If…then… else…’ command.

World Map Logic Activity

  • Age: 5-7 years
  • Concepts / Approaches: Tinkering, Programming, Logic
  • Curriculum Links: Geography

Pupils look at sequences of commands and use logical reasoning to predict what they do. They then program their commands to see if their predictions are correct.

Stop, think…do I consent?

  • Age: 9 – 11 years
  • Concepts / Approaches: Collaborating, Internet Services
  • Curriculum Links: English, Digital Literacy, PSHE

In this activity, pupils learn about the terms and conditions of a variety of social media organisations, and reflect on the personal information which people consent to ‘giving away’ when they sign up to such websites.
