Room 1 now have Scratch accounts through Mrs Poole's Teacher Account, a new and fantastic feature, as it lets us view and share each others work. We can 'look inside' other peoples projects to learn new skills. Leo (the expert) showed us some of the features of Scratch to get us started. Our focus was to have a 'play' and work collaboratively to gain new knowledge and skills.

Scratch says on their website ...
Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically - essential skills for life in the 21st century.
