    • Group Work comment from Scratch Educator Forum I have just used Scratch for the first time with a class of year6 pupils (UK, age 10 & 11 years). I showed them a few ideas and basic commands and the let them loose, working in pairs. The enjoyment , motivation and perseverance was impressive. Also the level of their language and discussion as each pair collaborated and worked towards making the sprites behave as they wanted them to was fascinating to listen to.
