Year 4 Woodley Cluster Coding Challenge

Three Primary schools in Woodley came together at The Bulmershe School recently for their annual Coding Challenge Day.  29 pupils Year 4 from Highwood, Rivermead and South Lake primary schools worked in pairs to design and code a game in Scratch that had an educational theme.  They worked hard in pairs for the day, coming up with ideas then coding their game and by the end of the day we had a set of working games that could help other pupils with their maths and literacy.  The children then presented their games to our panel of judges, the Mayor of Woodley and to their parents.

The Bulmershe School hosted the Primaries for the day, allowing the children to experience a Secondary school and use their computing facilities, and provided Year 9 Digital Ambassadors for the day to support and encourage the Primary children.  All the pupils, Primary and Secondary worked well together for the day and impressed the judges with their teamwork and resilience as well as their coding skills.  Well done to the winners and runners up, and to all who took part in the day.

Year 9 Digital Ambassadors: Tiffany R, Julia L, Amy S, Ella M, Ellie A, Max C, Rebecca M, Ben T
