What great fun we have had these past weeks. The whole school were treated (my opinion, shared by many) to an immersion in computing. “An hour is not enough,” was a common complaint from year 3 – year 6. Using scratch, java and other means we made things happen; solved problems (debugged) and enjoyed tremendous success. It was not restricted to digital media as I had an unplugged experince lined up for the year 5 children who were programmers and robots.
