Year 6 micro:bit Computing
Year 6 have been focusing on coding during their computing unit. They have been using micro:bits to create step counters, magnet detectors and a variety of other projects.
The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world.
When we used the Micro:bits, we created a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. After playing this with our friends, we made a step counter. I thought it was really fun and enjoyed the Rock, Paper, Scissors game the most – I’ve even thought about asking for a Micro:bit from my parents so I can try it at home!
