Scratch

During the Spring Term, Year 2 were developing their coding skills by programming and controlling Scratch the cat. The children really enjoyed it.  In school, we used the Scratch main programme but Scratch Jr is just as fun and will help build the children’s independence and confidence with these skills whilst at home.  Below are the weblinks for both versions of Scratch.  Please look at the sites/apps as the apps are free to download.
