Scratch It Club at Barnwell School

Year 5 & 6 Children Barnwell Scratch It Club

-Scratch IT- is series of after school sessions for students to explore the highly regarded Scratch programming/coding software and learn how to create games and animations using a straightforward drag and drop programming language. -Scratch IT- sessions will cover the basics and some quite advanced coding. Last year’s sessions saw students that attended going back into their own primary schools and teaching their peers some of the techniques they had learnt in -Scratch IT-.

-Scratch IT- 2016 will start on Wednesday 24th February 2016, Mr Sam Berry, one of our very experienced ICT teachers, will once again be delivering this ten week programme each Wednesday afternoon from 4pm– 5pm in one of our recently built and well equipped ICT suites on our Middle School Campus. We have the capacity for twenty students from years five and six to get involved and would If your child is interested them please inform us asap.

They are offering these places on a first come first served basis. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, I would be very grateful if you would let me have the names of any students that you wish to attend by Wednesday 10th February 2016.

Once I have names, I will confirm places and send out the parental information letters and permission forms.
