An afternoon of computer science when BoltonSICT visited Holy Infants
A carousel of activities was planned, the aim being to develop the pupils programming skills.
We used Purplemash and software 2Go, we used two free apps Kodable & BlueBot. The children said they thought they were playing games , but the apps were a little tricky in places. To help practice left & right, using the remote control cars helped some groups made really complex pathways for their cars! The BlueBot app was used to focus the children on a particular coding focus – BeeBot had to land on a given end square – that was not always the case!
We all agreed that we learnt lots & had lots of fun as well!
