An Hour of Code

On the 12th December, Year 3 and Year 4 took part in The Computer Science Education Week: An Hour of Code event. Over 17 million people worldwide also took part with the aim to introduce programming to those who had never tried it before. The event was supported by big names including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.

The students programmed in a visual block language called Blockly and had to complete a number of scenarios based around Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies.

For the majority of the students it was the first time they have tried any programming, yet the feedback from them was excellent and many of them have expressed an interest to carry on coding at home in their free time.
