Pupils take part in Collaborative Computing Day

A group of pupils from Year 4 and Year 6 recently took part in a special Collaborative Learning Day, with other schools in the Bellevue Education group, to enhance their experience of the Computing Curriculum.

Organised by Bellevue’s Education Director, Sam Selby, the event formed part of a series of academic pupil collaboration days in English, Maths, Science and Computer Science.

At the start of the session, the children were informed that aliens had landed on a spaceship and that they would need to create land crafts for moving about on Earth, and use their coding skills to program their craft to tow a heavy spaceship.

Working together with pupils from other schools, the children embraced the challenge of creating, evaluating and refining their designs and algorithms, to enable their craft to pull the most weight.
