Summer 1- 2018
This apptivity will get children looking at data and how it can be presented to allow it to be interpreted. Children will have to gather the data and then select the most appropriate method to display the data they have captured – in graphical format. This will teach them some of the fundamental skills of desktop publishing packages.
Spring 2- 2018
The best way for children to learn about computer programs and algorithms is to have a go themselves. Our spring 2 apptivity lets them use a variety of programming apps/software to give children a practical understanding of how computer programs actually run, how a computer follows a sequence of instructions and what to do when a program goes wrong.

“Let’s fix it” project. This apptivity has been designed to challenge children to analyse simple computer programs and for them to identify the errors within the code and then find a solution.
Being able to ‘debug’ code is a key skill children need to develop if they are to be able to write their own code. It also demonstrates an understanding of code and computational thinking.
