St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.

Year 3

At start of the unit Year 3 explored the  question, ‘what is a computer?’ Pupils examined non-traditional computers, such as smart watches and voice assistants, and explored the commonalities between devices in order to establish a definition of computer.


Year 3, recapped that computers follow precise & unambiguous instructions, that code is the language that humans and devices use to communicate with one another, and that they themselves can learn to write code to create programs.


During the Autumn term, Year 3 worked through a series of challenges that demonstrate the ‘who, when, what’ principle that underpins coding at all levels. They also developed their computing terminology beyond commands and algorithms to include objects, concurrency, and events.  To showcase off their new knowledge and skills, all children successfully coded an interactive postcard. 

Look at Year 3's amazing floor book evidencing all their work! Well done Year 3
