Hour of Code 2020

Hour of Code is celebrated all over the world on the week 7th - 11th December.

Each class in KS1 and KS2 completed a coding activity, as part of Hour of Code,
to promote Computer Science around the world. 

KS1

Year 1/2: Beaver Achiever
In Year 1/2 they had to help the beaver keep his dam safe by creating different codes. Some said the stages got tricky, but they worked hard to help out the beaver in the end and had a lot of fun! 

What did KS1 enjoy?

"I enjoyed his dancing because it made me laugh." - Amelia   "We had to help him move the logs to fix the wall." - Maja   "We moved the instructions in the right order to tell him what to do." - Ava   

Lower KS2

What did LKS2 think of this years Hour of Code?

"I really enjoyed it because it was really different." - Lena    "Thank you for lettings us learn new things about coding." - Skylar    "I thought it was fun and we got to play with letters and numbers to create python code." - Autumn   "I really enjoyed doing a different coding than we normally do." - Amelia

Upper KS2

Year 5/6: Dance Party

This year in Year 5/6 for our Hour of Code Activity, we completed a series of activities on Dance Party where we learned how to code a chosen character to dance, changing their moves, background colours and even adding fabulous backing dancers! We enjoyed the freedom of choosing from the songs and creating completely original dances!

What did UKS2 think about this years Hour of Code? 

"We coded the background changes and the dances for the animals." - Nicole T "I enjoyed that you could change the characters, the backgrounds and the moves a lot, because it let you make your own dance for the song." - Brandon 

"We learned how to change the dance. I enjoyed the cute bear character and it looked cool when it was dancing." Ellie "I learned how to code my dancer and I enjoyed it because  I want to create my own game in the future and coding helps me do it."
