On Friday afternoon, Toucan class were set a challenge to rescue the spaceman on 2Go on Purple Mash. The children are beginning to become very confident with logging onto the computers themselves using their emoji passwords.
Before the children were set off on their challenge, we recalled what an algorithm was and what was meant by the term ‘debug.’
We had a go as a whole class first before the children went off with their partners and made a few errors, but we were able to recognise their mistakes and debug and start again!
The children were able to demonstrate an excellent use of two of their behaviours for learning. They worked with others to help succeed in the challenge of rescuing the spaceman. They were also able to show excellent perseverance when things went wrong and we had to debug!
