Code makers

Year 6 have been developing their programming skills and learning  coding skills over recent weeks.

Its amazing that a few instructions, put in the right order and tested to make sure they run in the way intended, can produce images and text that respond to a user's entries.

As the encyclopaedia puts it :

Computer programming (often shortened to programming) is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs. Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation (commonly referred to as coding)of algorithms in a target Programming language.

All sounds very complex and yet our year 6 children are demonstrating this ability already!
