Today we ended our 6 week unit looking at Kodu with year 5. The game they made today managed to involved some quite intricate coding that tested the pupils knowledge of the program. The game involved enemies spawning from evil factories, then aimed to take down or main character. The Guide for making the game is here.
The video above was from 'that' boy who sits quietly most weeks and falls under my radar sometimes. His work was neat and tidy, and completed everything I asked. He was proud of his game, and was so pleased with himself at the end that I had to upload it! We also came across the screen recording software in Windows 10 that is sooooo easy for the kids to access. This has made sharing children's content from Minecraft and Kodu so much easier, as well as being relatable for the pupils. Youtube stars like Stampy are who they look up to, so sharing their work on youtube has much more relevance than a green tick in a book! He'd love some comments back if possible! Well done Abu!
