Year 3 had a fantastic trip to the Apple Store at Westfield shopping centre, Stratford on Tuesday! The second time we have been there for a totally different reason this year. Year 3 had great fun developing their coding skills, first playing the game ‘Tynker’, which allows you to choose a character to hatch from an egg, then program the character to complete different levels, the children had to work in teams to choose the correct code blocks to complete each level. After this we got to work some very cool little robots called ‘Sphero’. one half of the class had to use an iPad to program the spheros to complete a course, whilst the other half had to program their spheros to knock down bowling pins! The children had such good fun, and learnt lots about coding, they keep asking when we are going back again!
