Coding at Dunbarney PS

Children at Dunbarney spend a lot of time in school looking at coding, creating games and stories and learning about how computers work.  All children have been exposed to the https://code.org/ website and have log-ins.  A number of children have also used https://scratch.mit.edu/ and both these websites are very similar in how they work.  This film shows you a little about code.org.

         

And this one introduces Scratch.

  

These are great websites for teaching children how to code, but they also develop higher order thinking and problem solving skills.  Take a look at the websites:
