Game Designer

Children will learn to design, build and program games in this exciting session.

Each gaming project is designed to foster children’s skills in critical and creative thinking, problem solving and  collaboration with peers.

There are three projects to choose from:

  • Puzzling Times (Key Stage 1)
  • My Very Own Game (Lower Key Stage 2
  • Who Wants to Play? (Upper Key Stage 2)

Once the digital games are complete they can be shared with players from around the world. The finished games can also be used as an exciting stimulus to further develop the pupils’ digital literacy skills using various multimedia tools to create high quality posters and videos, persuasive texts, invitations to games fairs, interactive guides or stories.

The session is underpinned by 21st Century Skills (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking) and the pupils will also use the following skills:

  • Literacy
  • Digital Literacy
  • Multimedia
  • Basic – Advanced Programming

iPads and apps will be provided for the pupils to use throughout the day.
