European Code Week

codeweek27To celebrate European Code Week, Primary students were given the opportunity to spend some of their lunchtime in the computer room using Scratch 3.0. They had a lot of fun!

 

 

We have just installed the new version of Scratch in the primary school so it was a good opportunity to get to grips with the changes from the last version. Scratch is a block-based programming language which is designed for children. It is fun and it boosts creativity, problem-solving skills and encourages collaboration.

In Canterbury School, we use Scratch Jr in Years 2 and 3, progressing to Scratch desktop in Year 4 (making animations), Year 5 (drawing shapes) and Year 6 (making games and quizzes).

There were 1592 coding activities going on in Spain during European Code Week. Of these, 142 were taking place in the Canary Islands. Of those 142, 71 were taking place in Gran Canaria. Of those 71 events, 12 took place at the primary section of Canterbury School. As we arranged more than 10 events, we took part in the Code Week 4 All Challenge and received a Code Week Certificate for Excellence.
