You may know about the ‘Build a Band’ challenge, well here is part of the challenge. The beat part is the easiest thing about it but the others are hard, like in my piece I have a piano in the band and I have to pick the correct piano rhythm I found it hard to get the right piano notes so I had to figure out high or low notes. I loved the project, it was fun because I was able to build my own band. My friends all help each other and I can show them things and they can show me things.
Today Mr MacKie told year 5 to make a band in scratch. The first thing I did was I added a background then I added the music. I also added musical instruments like drums, electric guitar and a microphone. I found it hard finding the correct music. We also had to add people so it looked like the people were playing the instruments. The people are called sprites.
Today Mr MacKie asked the whole of year 5 to fix a problem in Scratch. If you didn’t know Scratch is an app where you program stuff to do cool things. For example, you can create a game, you can also create a quiz . Mr MacKie told us that we could use an app called snip-it. Snip-it is a cutting tool that you can use for a screen shot of an open window. The snips can then be copied and saved to your folder.
