This week, Year 5 visited OpenZone at The Word as part of their Computing work on programming. The children had a jam-packed day full of fantastic activities. They built models using Lego Spike and explored how to program their models to move and react in different ways. We had everything from dancing robots to goalkeepers!
Next, the children used Microbits and wrote programs for them including some with count-controlled loops. Finally, they wrote sequences of commands using a ‘dance party’ tutorial on Hour of Code. Many of the children enjoyed this site so much that they asked to do it at home! We have added the link to the website on our class page.
Here are some photos and a video of the children in action. Great work, Year 5!
