Concrete Coding

Our first Robotic Coding of the term and the lovely Y2s from Acklam Whin, Newcomen and Saltburn have been busy using Dot, Dash and Cue in a range of challenges and activities that have escalated in difficulty as the day has progressed. Linking coding to concrete outcomes is important to really establish a deep level of understanding between what is being ‘typed in’ and the effect on a real object. At Y2 this is especially important and the children have taken to it like ducks to water.

As you can see from the videos below, the huge maps that we created allowed the children to express their understanding of what they had learned and add in some finishing touches: victory dances were optional!
