Y6 – Computing – micro:bit

In Computing this half term, Year 6 have been learning to use the micro:bit. This small but powerful circuit board is packed full of interesting hardware and computational power. So far, children have explored the basic inputs (e.g. buttons, movement) and outputs (e.g. LED lights) and have experimented with adding external components such as a buzzer. This linked well to our Science work from earlier in the year on electrical circuits. We also experimented with the ‘music’ coding blocks to digitally compose our own music.
