On Friday last week, your child took part in a whole school virtual ‘Ecocoding Show’. Years 1 to 6 enjoyed a 30 minute assembly where they learnt more about how and why we should reduce, reuse, recycle and refuse to help protect our environment.
Professor Trice from ‘Get with the Program’ (a Hampshire County Council fund-assisted computing initiative) was cast into the classrooms and along with the show that her team had produced, demonstrated to the children how coding to program computers and industry robots can help us make environmentally friendly consumer choices. The children learnt about creating algorithms and debugging the code that they had written which is part of the primary computing curriculum. Ask your child what the words algorithm and debugging mean! Years 4, 5 and 6 also carried out fun workshop challenges.
