Variables in Games


To start our topic we will be playing a variety of games, using different consoles and platforms. We will then evaluate these games, looking closely at what they have in common and how they differ. This will help us to sort the games in different categories and allow us to think carefully about the programming behind it.

Later in the topic, we will program a game using variables - hopefully we will find some new future game programmers!

National Curriculum Objectives:


Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific

goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve

problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.


Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with

variables and various forms of input and output.


Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms

work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.


Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet

services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a

range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given

goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting

data and information.

Our English topic will continue with On the Origin of the Species. We will be writing Non-Fiction explanations based on an animal. We will exploring some more fantastic texts in Whole Class Reading - including The House With Chicken Legs & The Boy at the Back of the Class. 

Maths will consist of completing our topic on fractions and our final unit of the term - Geometry - position and direction. 

Our PE sessions will continue to be Monday and Friday - we will be starting Indoor Athletics and continuing with Netball, with an outside coach. 

We complete our current read...

When we have finished this amazing book - we have another one to start reading
