Campion School already has strong links with local primary schools. Through our primary liaison program year 5 and year 6 students have experienced art and science activities, now with the support of Digital School House we can extend this to computing activities to prepare students for the computing curriculum at key stage 3.
We will use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs by using a variety of fun activities on and away from computer. Students will have the opportunity to look at algorithms though card tricks and extend these ideas to create an animated dance sequence in Yenka. There will be opportunities to experience the programming constructs sequence, selection and iteration through the design and creation of a computer game.
