Code IT Primary Programming Series

Basic computer coding is now among the most important skills a child can have for their future. There are many programming languages designed specifically for children to begin their studies, but the Scratch programming language, already recognised in schools around the world, is widely considered as the ideal place to begin programming in early education.

The highly successful Code-It series is a comprehensive guide to teaching Scratch to children in a classroom setting. It is designed for the UK-based KS2 curriculum but can easily be used to supplement other programming courses for children between the ages of 7 and 11.

There are four pupil workbooks designed to work in conjunction with the Code-It teacher handbook. They provide structure and resources for the children, including optional homework activities to extend to learning outside the classroom.

Workbook 1 provides all the pupil resources to accompany Year 3, Chapter 2 of the teacher resource book How to Teach Primary Programming Using Scratch, including optional homework activities to extend learning outside the classroom. It explains how to think, program and debug exciting programming projects such as Smoking Car Game, Music Machine, Conversation, Interactive Display and Dressing up Game. It also outlines how to use analytical computational thinking skills for algorithm design, algorithm evaluation, decomposition and generalisation.

How to use this book
Your teacher will instruct you when to use these resources. Please don t complete them until asked.
Each Scratch programming project has an overview page with further challenges that you can try at home.
One star challenges are the easiest and three star challenges are the hardest.
Remember in school it is your responsibility to fix/debug your own code and that is true at home as well. No one learns anything by having someone else do it for them!
If you get stuck you may want to try some of these strategies:
Read the code out loud. Does it make sense?
Explain the code to a favourite stuffed toy. (This is called rubber ducking).
Click on just one block of code: does it do what you think it should? If it does move on and try another block until you find the bug.
Save your work first. Break long code into smaller sections. Test each block separately. This is called divide and conquer.
Remember even professional programmers get stuck sometimes and have to find and fix bugs. This is normal and will help you become a more resilient problem solver.
You don t have to just stick to these challenges: if you spot something you want to create, go for it.
1 A . Smoking Car
Create a car that travels round a roadway emittng smoke as it goes. Can the user keep the smoke trail on the roadway?
Computational Thinking
Look at the program working. Can you work out all the things you will need to make and all the things you will need to make it do?
Algorithm Evaluation
Programmers often have more than one way to do the same thing. Which one is best? Which one uses the least instruction blocks?

Arrange code so that commands go in the right order.
Challenge Yourself At Home
Ask a parent or guardian if you can download Scratch 1.4 and install it on your computer. You can find the download at 1.4/ .
On the iPad look for the Pyonkee.
First Steps

Can you make a vehicle that steers and leaves a trail behind?
Next Steps

Can you draw lots of obstacles in the background for it to avoid?
Further Steps

Can you program a sequence of Scratch blocks as a route from one side to the other that starts when you press the T key?
Describe your project here
What did you enjoy doing? Did you discover any new effects? Did you struggle with anything? Remember all programmers make mistakes (bugs) and the best ones keep trying to find a way to fix things!

Learning Intention:
I am learning to decompose a game and program using keyboard inputs
Success Criteria:
How did I do?
I can decompose the game
