Banavie Primary school in Fort William have been doing some exciting Computing Science work during National Digital Learning week. Below is a brief report from Leah Burns from Banavie.
P1-6 have taken part in an hour of code and between us we have been coding for over 100 hours, the children loved using their computational thinking skills and working in partners to navigate their way through the levels.
In Primary 1 they had to write algorithms for the baker’s business in Fairyland, he has been really busy and has just had to employ Little Miss Muffet, Little Bo Peep and Little Jack Horner however they are useless! Primary 1 had to create a simple algorithm for them to follow to make sure they decorate the gingerbread men properly.
In Primary 3/4 they have been learning about algorithms and have been creating lots of real life examples for their peers to follow.
In Primary 4/5 we looked briefly at how technology has evolved and came up with our own fantasy digital creations, there were lots of good ideas but I particularly liked a house that could shrink and move around with you so you never had to pack your suitcase or book a hotel again!
In Primary 5/6 they have been carrying out market research on what the younger children like and are using this information to make new BeeBot games. They will be making lots of games based on Fairy Tales and Castles and Knights, the primary ones and twos can’t wait to play them.
It has been a very busy week but lots of fun and everyone has learnt something new, including the teachers!
The Digital Learning Team will add news or examples of good practice on here so keep checking back for up to date info.
