Another busy week in Year 5! This week we have been focusing on building up our coding skills. The children were able to identify correct vocabulary by explaining words such as 'algorithm', 'program', 'command' and 'debugging'. Following on from this, we looked at implementing our knowledge into our coding programme, code.org. We were challenged with a variety of tasks that aimed at directing a character towards an end goal which the children achieved by using commands to create algorithms. Additionally, they were tasked with debugging existing algorithms by identifying problems in the code and rectifying these. As you can see from the pictures above, we were really enjoying our learning on coding!
