Exciting, Engaging Game Making!


This week Year 9 CORE ICT were set the task of creating their own ‘shark attack’ game using SCRATCH software. The instructions for the game came from an excellent resource at and the students were on task from the moment the work was given to them.

If you’ve not used SCRATCH, I suggest you do, if you have and want to test what knowledge has been retained by your students this makes a nice one of project based lesson to see if they can create the game with minimal help from the teacher and a focus on their own mental recall and ability to follow written instructions.
