Hour Of Code

by Mr Collinson

What is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2018 Computer Science Education Week will be December 3-9. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Y6 WWII Houses

by Mr Collinson

Last half term Year 6 learnt all about the second world war. In computing we used the program Sketch up to 3D model our houses and then removed bomb damage to try to imagine what they would look like if the had been hit in the blitz. Watch the video for some examples. Well done Year 6, great effort from everyone.
