it took us for ever but in the end we got there. The problem was that we didn’t do the code correctly but then we got the manual and we copied it and got the light sensor to work. We worked on the white board that had a black line. The light sensor worked for a bit but then it went straight and crashed into the edge of the board. We went back to the manual to check our program and realised what was wrong. The light sensor followed the black line around the big oval without any trouble. It was easier than I expected to get the ultra sonic sensor working. Next we decided to change the colour on the program so it then followed the white tape on the carpet.

makey makey controller

i tried 4 different games  using leaves and play dough play dough worked well with Pac man then i tried leaves with:

meatball bounce,

only 2 leaves were needed for this game

1 to move forward

1 to move back

scrolling platform needed 3 controllers

1 to move forwards

1 to move back

1 to jump

The finally Up in the Air

This game only needed 1  controller

The same controller was used to start and move through the gap.  This was my favourite game as it was fun but challenging to move through the gap.

All About Me, Jarrod

Jacques helped me get started with the programming of Scratch. All year 5 are working on ‘All About Me’ for our buddies who are in Year 3. They are coming up to Middle School next Wednesday. It is important to tell my buddy about me. I put the trampoline on the screen then I added the two people, Jarrod and Coco. I added Peggy, my dog who can do some tricks. I decided to add speech bubbles and I did the typing for Jarrod and Coco to do some talking. I didn’t find it hard to do this work.
