Digital Schoolhouse with Ballyclare High School

Primary Six  - Mrs McCullough's class visited the ICT department in Ballyclare High on Wednesday.  They are participating in a three week programme organised by 'Digital Schoolhouse'.  Digital Schoolhouse is powered by PlayStation and uses play-based learning to engage pupils in computing; focusing on Coding. In the first workshop pupils explored a card trick; considered the sequence required to make a computer character dance the Hokey Cokey and worked in teams to devise a dance routine.  Through these activities the pupils saw the importance of clear and concise instructions and were introduced to the term 'algorithm'. We are looking forward to embarking on some Coding tasks next week.

Each of the three P6 classes will be participating this term and Primary 7 will be taking part after Christmas.  For further information please visit www.digitalschoolhouse.org.uk/
