Give your child a healthy treat this Easter (and give yourself a break!)

Easter holiday 2018 Young Learners & Intermediate Games design & Digital Images courses

Scratch scanners game
During the first two sessions of this fun course the students are taught to build a finished game. In subsequent sessions they put into practice what they have learnt and devise and build their own game, and in so doing learn coding, improve their maths skills and meet national computing curriculum targets.

Course content

Gov.UK logoOur courses cover attainment targets from the new National Computing Curriculum.

This course is suitable for beginners and intermediate students.

For beginners, this courses teaches students the basic concepts of games design including interactive animation, character and object control, and programming concepts such as properties and functions.

Intermediate students will be implementing features, such as timers, health bars, and advanced character animation and sound techniques, thereby building on their existing skills.

Course content is tailored to challenge and improve each learner's existing skills and knowledge. Learners are continually assessed to establish the level they are working at and to stretch them.

CertificateAccreditation & levels

This course is accredited with Young Games Designer Level 1, 2 & 3 Pixel Gang Certificates. To earn a certificate learners must complete tasks and create supporting evidence.

games design class

The children start by learning the basics of games design, including creating characters and objects, and programming movement and interactions.

Each child conceives and builds their own game, putting into practice all they have learnt, and extending their knowledge and skills with the teacher's help through the exploration of algorithms functions and properties.

In so doing, they learn how to analyse a problem by breaking it down into steps, and then use a graphical object orientated programming language to build a sequence of instructions for the computer to follow. The children need to apply some maths, solve logic problems, and think about what instructions the computer will need.

Equipment

Learners can either bring their own laptops or use our computers. Advice is here.
