Winton meet the Prime Minister!

Monday 8th December 2014

What an incredible morning!  Today Year 6 and some Year 5 ‘s from Winton were invited to visit Number 10 Downing Street to take part in an exclusive ‘Hour of Code’ event and meet the Prime Minister, David Cameron!  We used a programming language on to create Winter Wonderland scenes with Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, then we used to design our own games.  Well done to everybody for a fantastic morning coding and for representing Winton so brilliantly.

The Facilities Manager from the Prime Minister’s Office complimented us as being the “best behaved class he had seen for a very long time”, and the tutors who were from Barclays Bank said, “We couldn’t have had a better group of children for this event.  Their coding skills are excellent and we are so impressed with the games they created in such a short time!”.  A special well done to Abdul, Luke and Ruby who were chosen to present the games they coded to the rest of the group and to Ubaid who got to shake hands with the Prime Minister himself!

Did you enjoy your morning?  What did you learn?  What will you take from this experience?  Will you continue coding?  How do you think this opportunity may affect your future and your decisions?

Scratch Tinkering 1.12.2014

Hi Mars class,

This afternoon we have been learning about algorithms and the importance of a clear, precise sequence of instructions. What else did we discuss this afternoon? Can you remember any of our key words and what they mean?

What did you discover when you explored Scratch? Tell me all about your tinkering experience here!

Miss Bates 🙂
