Year 5's Crumble Coding Computer Workshop!

Year 5 were amazing in the Crumble Coding Workshop yesterday!  They followed the instructions perfectly to produce a piece of wearable tech to use in their exploration of the Rainforest!  Year 5's ideas were brilliant, ranging from helping them to see in the dark, to actually attracting Poison Dart Frogs with their self-designed caps, belts or wristbands!  Their behaviour and listening skills were fantastic and we were so impressed!  Thank you to Don and Liz for all your help - we really enjoyed the session!  Mrs Blomeley and Ms Wagstaff.

What A Workshop

Oh wow! The children have been so engrossed in the Crumble Coding Workshop this morning. They have made Sparkles, which were our traffic lights, change colour by linking up Crumble kits and writing algorithms and code to control them. They have been so good at listening and following instructions, that Dom and Liz were impressed. A great morning Year 4, well done.
