Computing: programming a BBC micro:bit

Wednesday 01 March 2023

Computing is our topic this half term and we are learning about programming. We are using a small computer called a BBC micro:bit which can be programmed using a laptop.

On Monday, we found out what a micro:bit is and discussed different inputs and outputs. Everyone was able to create an algorithm on the laptops before downloading it onto the micro:bit. The class enjoyed exploring the different functions of the micro:bit and seeing what it can do.

On Tuesday, we created a magical 8 ball feature by programming the micro:bit to say different things when you shook it.

See if your child can remember the algorithm needed to create this!

Well done Year 6!
