Last week, many children across KS2 had the opportunity to make a Microbit Fruit Keyboard.
They learnt about different types of input triggering events in their code. Button inputs, such as on console controllers, were very familiar to most but using the PINS on the microbit for inputting and outputting information was a new concept. This activity also helped embed knowledge previously acquired with regards electricity and circuitry.
Again, we had lots of fun creating these in our computing classes and the pinnacle was one of our children giving a rendition of ‘London’s Burning’ played on an orange, banana and apple.
