Year 6s put their computer programming skills to the test.
In Computing lessons with Mr Cousins, Year 6 students have been refining their skills in coding and programming by logging onto Minecraft Hour of Code. Drawing on their use of logic, their task was to use blocks of code to take characters on an adventure through a Minecraft world.
Each child worked independently through a series of puzzles, responding to instructions and inserting loops and sequences into their programme to make their characters overcome obstacles and move in the right direction. The self-driven exercise was designed to make the girls work at putting instructions together like jigsaw pieces and become more confident in their understanding of programming.
