BBC Micro:Bits

Do you know how to program a computer? In Year 6 this week, we have been exploring coding with the use of our new BBC Micro:Bit miniature computers. The children enjoyed exploring their new 'pocket-sized computers', giving them names and using a simple drag-and-drop coding interface similar to other coding platforms that they have been taught to use in previous years, to create a simple name badge.

Through the use of Micro:Bits, children are encouraged to explore ideas using real code. The device provides an authentic experience of the interaction between hardware and software and gives children practical computer knowledge. Using it, they can see how what they do with the code on-screen has a direct impact on the device they're holding in their hand.

Watch this space to see all the amazing skills the children will get to use over this half-term...
