Following on from feedback received from Year 6 transition students after visiting The John Frost School, four of our Year 10 students have worked extremely hard to create a platform game aimed at making the transition process more fun and engaging.
Tim and Nima started the game initially but after their onward move to college, our dedicated Year 10 boys took over. Victor, Ben, Jack, and Jacob met with Code Club students from Year 7 and our cluster primary schools. This also included collaborating using Hwb/ Office 365 Teams, to get an understanding of what students would like to see when they visit the school. The Unity 3D programme was used to create the game which allows transition students an opportunity to find out what the average school day involves when they join Year 7.
The game, which they have named ‘My John Frost Adventure’, is structured in the same way as a school day and gives students the chance to experience lessons, site maps, timetables & planners, the signing in system and even quizzes.
Mrs Chesterman, Head of ICT said “I am so proud of the students and all the hard work they have put into creating the game. They have worked so hard, giving up their break and lunch times to make sure it’s ready for the Year 6 students.”
Well done to all those involved – it’s a great achievement!
The first version of the game should be ready soon into the New Year.
