Campion School already has strong links with local primary schools. Through our primary liaison program year 5 and year 6 students have experienced art and science activities, now with the support of Digital School House we can extend this to computing activities to prepare students for the computing curriculum at key stage 3.
Workshop 1 ‘E Safety Comics’:
We will discuss the importance of E Safety looking at SMART (safe, meeting, accepting, reliable, tell) and the effects of online behavior. We explore E Safety through Graphic Design allowing pupils to design and debug, evaluate the differences in developing electronic interactive comics and apply logical reasoning to explain how algorithms work. Through exploring unplugged activities to grasp the design concept, we will transfer these skills onto the computer. Using the programme 'Comic Life' pupils are able to create their own E Safety comic.
Workshop 2 'Micro: bit in Wonderland: Coding and Craft':
This workshop explores coding and electronics with a purpose behind the creative process. This workshop provides and introduction to using the micro: bit recreating objects and scenes from Alice’s adventures providing, an imaginative backdrop for developing modern skills. Pupils will learn to code and programme the micro: bit and make fun and useful things.
