Burgess Hill Girls, recently appointed as a Digital Schoolhouse, is offering free computing workshops to primary schools in Sussex.
Digital Schoolhouse has been created in partnership with Nintendo UK and The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (UKIE). It uses play-based learning to engage the next generation of pupils and teachers with the computing curriculum. This learning is achieved via ingenious literacy and numeracy themed computing workshops aimed at local primary schools. The workshops are delivered by a network of recognised Digital Schoolhouses and lead teachers. Burgess Hill Girls was appointed as a Digital Schoolhouse in October 2019 and the lead teacher is Jo Tooth.
From November 2019 until April 2020 Burgess Hill Girls is offering two free workshops for Year 5 and 6 classes at Sussex primary schools; ‘Marvellous Maths – Make a Funky Shape Calculator Using Algorithms’ and ‘Logical Literacy – Create Stories With A Twist Using Algorithms.’
The workshops last three hours and are offered on every Monday of the school term between 10.30am and 2.00pm.
