Year 6: The coding experts

Posted on May 23, 2018


The Year 6 students are certainly showing huge aptitude and confidence in their coding lessons this term and have been racing through their various tasks. So far, they have learned about strings and variables, creating code with while loops and then testing their code with emulators, before downloading their programmes to microbits.

During the rest of this term, they will be moving on to projects such as creating a working step counter, developing ‘friend testers’, creating text messaging systems and – most challenging of all – building temperature sensors to go around the school. These will measure the local temperature in different areas of the school and report it back to a central computer. It is all very advanced stuff but the girls have taken to it like a duck to water and have impressed their teachers with their enormous coding talent.
