History: Which of King Henry VIII’s marriages was most significant?
Today we learnt about King Henry VIII and details of his marriages. We then used a speaking frame to empathise with his wives, putting forward their case for why they are most important. Finally, we had to decide who we thought was the most significant of Henry’s wives.
We planned and designed a video game based on the classic “Pong”. Our designs are themed but use the same elements of the original game. After importing our images as sprites and stage backgrounds, we begun to create algorithms. We created a set of instructions for each sprite as control commands.
