Witney Community Primary School
Year 5 practice their Computer Coding Skills
This is what it looks like when your children are completely engrossed in writing code to complete tasks or make things happen on the screen. Code.org is one of the best learning tools I have ever come across. Learning to code teaches children skills like trial and error, as well as making them use units of distance, angles, time and other variables to complete challenges. They learn a lot about logical processes and using loops and even nested loops to use the least lines of code to achieve a goal. They can even design their own games. This website makes the child log in and I can observe the results of their work on line and track who needs help and who is pushing on. Later on this year they will be programming real robots using the skills they are learning now.
