As part of our push to include more coding and digital technology skills in the curriculum, I organised for our Year 3 and 5 students to take part in the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge for the first time. This involved students using one of their IT lessons to log on and complete a quiz, either individually or in groups, to test their ability to think logically and to reason. A sample question for Year 3 and for Year 5 is shown below.
This week I presented the certificates of merit, credit and distinction on assembly. We had a lot of merits and credits and one boy in Year 5 got a distinction. This was a fun and worthwhile event to get involved in and we will be expanding our participation next year.
