CHILDREN from Liscard Primary were taught the basics of computer programming as part of National "Hour of Code" week.

By the end of each session, children from level and years one and two had developed and extended pre-existing games, problem solved to eliminate "bugs" or glitches in coding and progressed to designing their very own game using the new code language.

The school's Foundation Stage children also got involved and were inspired by a Haunted House problem, where they were using quite complex coded instructions to enable each of the characters to move.

"Digital Leaders" from year six helped the children from years one and two with their challenges.
