How to create a Kahoot….
During the night from 1st to 2nd June students of our school took part in the Code Night – an annual event which takes place in our school for the third time. The event was a success just like the two previous ones. It aims at igniting coding and computer science learning. In the course of the evening and the night students used Scratch. Scratch is a graphical programming language. Children can drag and combine code blocks to make a range of programs, including animations, stories, musical instruments and games. It’s a bit like the programming equivalent of LEGO! Scratch allows children to learn coding concepts and create interactive projects without needing to learn a text-based programming language. But for coding the participants watched a movie as well as had some delicious pizza. Time flew fast and enjoyable.
We can learn using ancient board games!
There are three board games of the ancients: Mancala, Petteia and Achi. Mancala is the name of a single game and at the same time the term family-wide known games almost all over the world: in Africa, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and parts of Latin America. In addition to these regions, this game is also known in other parts of the world. Games of this type are one of the oldest games in the world. Planes found in Egypt and from the second half of the second millennium BC are known. One of the copies found in Kenya is dated even for the Neolithic period. The mancala name derives from the Arabic language from the Naqal word – move around. Achi is a version of a tic-tac-toe board game. Achi is from Ghana. Some sources say that this type of game was already known in ancient Rome. Petteia is a logical game of ancient Greeks. It was very popular in the ancient world. The great philosophers Plato and Aristotle played in it. Each of these games teaches us logical thinking. Playing, you can have great time combining fun and learning. It is very important, that all the boards we use when playing at the school, we did it ourselves.The Mancala board is made of cork and the other two are made of cardboard.We made them during an additional math lesson for classes IV-VI and we play during these classes.

Creating board games
Students were creating board games on Art lessons. This task was supposed to strengthen creativity among the young as well as consolidate the knowledge about our country.
Children were making the boards and inventing the questions by themselves. After their work was finished they were able to play the game according to the rules. These activities turned out to be very interesting, involving and were simply great fun. Older students got involved in the work by translating the whole game into English.
