I'm starting with my kids on Monday: and I'm releasing the stacks for teaching as I go along (2 already uploaded).
So, anyone who wishes to teach with these stacks, mess around for fun,
or whatever, is more than welcome to pop across to the Facebook page and "beg, borrow or steal" the material with my blessing.

Have a super Summer.

This is the first stack for the Summer classes. The '+' button contains code: the other 3 buttons don't.
Pupils should write the necessary code in the 3 empty buttons by modifying the code in the '+' button.

This is the second stack for the Summer classes. The buttons with red borders contain full code.
The button ("=") with a blue border contains partial code. Pupils should complete the calculator.

And we'll follow that up with a spot of Math(s):

To convert between Celsius, Fahrenheit, Reamur and Rankine temperature scales.

The lower-level classes will start today (17 June) with this; use of the 'ask' dialogue:
The button outlined in red contains code, the 'AGE' button doesn't.
Pupils/students should write code in the button 'AGE' to get the sort of answer visible in the second picture.

It's moving day tomorrow (21 June) and the children will be introduced to using arrowKey and keyDown as ways
of moving artefacts around on-screen.

They will also learn about intersect.
The stack has lots of code missing.

This stack involves both animation using a sequence of images inside a group and
lateral movement to produce fairly effective animation.

This illustrates using keys to control scripts. The 'ACTION' button checks the state of the SHIFT key, and if it is depressed EXITS the script.

The card script waits for other keys to be pressed; and if the 'z' is pressed the action resumes.

Having written something for the Belkin Nostromo n52 I'm going to plug in all sorts
of fairly crappy game controllers to the computers in the school and "let them suffer":

Later on in the week I'll post anything that comes out of this exercise here.
