Code Week

EU Code Week is a grassroots initiative that aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way…

Learning to code helps us make sense of the rapidly changing world around us. Our school is joining fellow organisers and participants to inspire the development of coding and computational thinking skills in order to explore new ideas and innovate for the future. This week Ms Vanessa introduced the code-a-pillar to her young students. Code-a-pillar is a STEM toy that inspired these young students to develop critical thinking skills through a hands-on robotic caterpillar. The students had turns creating a sequence. They had to choose from forward, right and left segments and then they watched the caterpillar move accordingly, thereby introducing coding to our young students. Here are some photos of an activity that took place in Ms Vanessa Camilleri’s Kindergarten class:
