This week we have been celebrating Computer Science Education Week. As part of this all classes have been joining in with the ‘Hour of Code’ by exploring a variety of activities using Scratch and ScratchJR.
Children in Year 4 and Year 6 have also been benefiting from advanced support and guidance from Jon our Code Club volunteer. Classes have also been given a wide selection of Coding texts for them to use to extend their knowledge.
This week’s achievements assembly will be a special Computer Science Education Week celebration where children will be awarded special prizes for their effort, skill and enthusiasm throughout the week.
We hope that Computer Science Week will help us to raise the profile of Computer Science at Michael Faraday. We also hope that children are inspired and motivated to find out more about Computer Science.
