Year 5 Computers – Coding

Thursday, December 2, 2021

Year 5 students have been learning how to code in their Computers classes with Mr. Matthew Jones. Coding is how we communicate with computers, and is used to build and run websites, apps, video games and more. Learning how to code helps to develop students’ logical and numerical thinking whilst also equipping them with a skill that is increasingly in demand in modern industries.

Students have been improving their coding skills by working through the courses set within ‘code.org’. In doing so, students have shown persistence and demonstrated improvement in their critical thinking skills. Students have also developed their ability to collaborate and share knowledge with their peers.
