Year 5 children have been learning about micro-bits.
We used MakeCode, which is a block-programming website that lets you drag and drop, blocks to tell your micro:bit what to do. It has a simulator so you can check your program before sending it to your micro:bit!
Micro:bits are tiny programmable device used for teaching coding: the language of computers. Commands written in code tell computers what to do, from making simple actions and sounds to operating complex, multi-level computer games.
Hareem input a set of codes to make a flashing heart.
The children also used the codes to make smiling faces as well as their names which flashed across the micro:bit one letter at a time.
