The Hour of Code

The Hour of Code

The ‘Hour of Code’ for Computer Science Education Week this week was a success! Through a range of puzzles, the children were able to use sequencing, conditionals and loops to create algorithms with code blocks.  They learnt that programming is neither difficult nor boring – but a powerful tool they can use to bring their imagination to life!

Reception children had their Hour of Code using Busythings which you can access from home through LGFL using the children’s personal Usernames and Passwords. Launch Busy Things by clicking on the link below and log in using their “Normal USO Login”.

Year 1 enjoyed coding through “Candy Quest” and Year 2 were engrossed in “Dragon Blast”, both accessible from home through the link below:

Here are some comments from the children:

I enjoyed it a lot! It was a challenge!

I was so pumped up because I’d never tried it before but I went up to level 21!

I was a little bit frustrated when I got it wrong but I persevered, debugged it and got it right!

A big well done to Burlington Infants for successfully completing the Hour of Code 2019!
