What skills were developed?
Though this project the three main areas we have focused on are programming, persuasive writing and oracy presentation. By the end of the project most children were able to independently create an algorithm and critique their work to make improvements. In their persuasive writing the children used rhetorical questions and persuasive phrases to persuade the reader and the children developed their oracy presentation by working on using their voices, gestures and facial expressions in a varied and confident way.
What the teacher says
“Pupils really enjoyed exploring coding using a variety of different apps and worked really well in pairs to produce a fantastic final product. It was also great to see how confident the children were in presenting their persuasive sentences on green screen and how inquisitive they were when we explored the different stops on the Central Line.”
