Children in Year 5 took part in a 'practice' Bebras challenge today at Queen Ethleburga's College in York. The challenge is designed to get children all over the world excited about computing, particularly focusing on computational and logical thinking.
As a bonus, we had a tour of Queen Ethleburga's....one of the highlights was coming face to face with the 8m high transformer 'Bumblebee', which has to be seen to believed!!!
Up to this point, Brigshaw was our preferred choice of secondary school!!! Our children will complete the 2017 challenge by the end of the week. Early indications (from the practice tests) show that many of our children will receive Distinctions and Merits! A massive thanks to Ms Walker for organising this project and for welcoming us so warmly to Queen Ethleburga's College.
