Well done to Year 6 who have been creating their own mini Blackpool Illuminations on the microbits this term. They have used the LED display to show scrolling messages and images with a Blackpool theme. Some children have even created moving images.
Not only did they learn how to control a new piece of equipment, they were also set the challenge that it was to be implemented using a new environment – the text based coding editor Python. Making the step from block-based coding to text-based isn’t easy but they were all determined to rise to the challenge.
