Year 3 - 6 boys take on a Computational Thinking Challenge

Elmhurst School for Boys

19th October 2017 | Key Stage 2

As part of our school development plan, focus has been on extending critical and creative thinking within the curriculum. Boys in Years 3 - 6 are busy preparing to take part in the 'Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge' during the second week of November.

The Bebras Challenge is a competition aimed at raising awareness of Computer Science in a fun and rewarding way. Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps. Examples of these techniques include the ability to break down complex tasks into more simple components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalisation and abstraction. During their ICT lessons, our pupils have been tackling a series of challenging yet fun computer science problems, demonstrating their logic and reasoning skills along the way. Boys can practice the challenges at home during half term by visiting the below website:
