Shaun the Sheep Game Academy in Scratch

Hey you! Yeah you! Do you like computer games? They're awesome aren't they? They let your explore strange worlds, become cool characters with mind blowing powers and take on quests you can only dream of. But wouldn't it be amazing to design your own quests, and create your own worlds?

Well the Nominet Trust and Aardman Animations have released a huge pile of characters, places and props from the Shaun the Sheep universe into the Scratch coding platform. They're looking for people to make an amazing computer game and there are prizes to be won.

I know it sounds intimidating making a whole game but on the website there are tutorials and help guides to assist you in making your game. Also there is a Resources page that will let you continue your coding skills.

This is a brilliant opportunity to get your pupils and children excited about coding and by including such a beloved character, it will make Scratch more appealing than ever. Click on the link below and make a game now!
