Task: Today you are going to turn Roald Amundsen’s polar expedition into a newspaper article. Imagine you are writing your newspaper story at the time (December 1911) and you are reporting on the fact he is the first person to reach the South Pole, remember this was a phenomenal achievement and should be reported as such. 


Read/listen to the text '14th December 1911 newspaper article text'



Answer the following questions:

How many years after Roald Amundsen reached the South Pole was this newspaper article written?

Summarise the second paragraph (that starts ‘It was to take…’) in your own words.

What was the purpose of including two extracts from a newspaper taken at the time?

Is it useful to have a quote from Amundsen in the newspaper article? Explain your reasoning.

LO- To understand how to programme using scratch

Success criteria

  1. I can draw a background using blocks to make a more complex maze
  2. I can program consequences for specific actions
  3. I can create code to move between 2 backdrops


Open the maze game that you created in yesterday’s session. If you cannot find it, quickly recreate this if you can.

Now watch my tutorial to understand how to create another level for your maze

game. You can watch the tutorial the whole way through or pause when suggested

and work alongside the video.



I have added the coding used for the game as a resource to download if you need

some extra help.


  1. Design a backdrop with more complex obstacles and an exit
  2. Create the code so that once the sprite reaches the exit of the first backdrop
  3. it will move to the second backdrop (next level)
  4. Programme the sprite to be in a particular starting position for when you press the green flag
  5. Save your game


Extension: How many levels can you make? Can you add another obstacle rather

than just the maze. Will the sprite always start in the same place? Will the green

exit always be in the same place?
