Coding – Games design

This term KS3 pupils in computing have been understanding instructions in sequences and using logical reasoning to predict outcomes. They have developed their understanding of directional programming and block programming to create basic games.

They have been supported in accessing Microsoft Makecode Arcade to make games then tinker with the script to change variables and sprites. The favourite part for pupils was, once their games were complete they were able to download them onto handheld consoles and play them together to try and beat each other’s scores.

Sho was able to extend her learning by adding her own sounds and develop extra parts to the game. Bryce changes the sprites to make the game funny and makes the game harder by making it faster with more enemies.
