This week we will be looking at improving our skills in Art, Design and Technology and Computing. Thus, this week the children will be researching and looking at work by William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) a British textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement.  They will then move onto looking at existing board games; discussing the good and the bad and then finally using their computing and coding skills make their own interactive game!



Using the resources below and the internet research the famous artist William Morris 1834 - 1896. You can record your findings in your green school book, in an information leaflet or using a power point. 



Using your research from yesterday we would like you to design your own printing pattern using influences from William Morris.



Today we would like you to research and discuss all the different board games you have played with your siblings, family or friends. What did you like about them? Why was it a fun game? How does the game work? Is there anything you would change? How could you improve the game? Record facts or draw improvements you think would make the game even better, maybe even give them a score out of 10 and rate your games best- worst!



Using what you discussed and rated yesterday you are now going to create your own board game. You can be as creative as you like! You can create 3D figures, or even a 3D game. Use key/challenge questions to pass a level or earn extra points. It could include facts about your family or even facts from your home learning e.g to move onto the next level what is 9x8? Remember to use lots of bright colours and make sure your game includes very clear instructions as we would love to play these games together when you return to school!



Today we would like you to use your coding skills and create your own online, interactive game using the program Scratch (which is free to download on android and apple devices if you do not have access to a computer or laptop). To do this you will need to:


1. Go onto Google and type in the word Scratch

2. Click on the first link which will be Scratch Online - Scratch - MIT

3. You will then be taken to the web page where you will see a light blue border at the top, it will have option to create, explore, ideas and about

4. Click create

5. It will then take you to a page where you can code. Along the top it will say file, edit and tutorials. Click Tutorials.

6. It will then give you tutorials to choose from. Pick 'Make a chase game', 'Pong Game' or 'Animate an adventure game'. 

7. It will then allow you to code and build your own free online interactive game.

8. Once finished you can save you game online to come back to or to your device.
