Great Waldingfield pupils win computer coding competition
Youngsters from Great Waldingfield Primary School were crowned champions of computer coding, after programming a robot for a recent competition.
Deputy headteacher David Sandford took Year 6 pupils to BT in Martlesham on Wednesday, when they put their computing skills to the test against children from five other primary schools in the Ipswich area.
They were split into groups of three and tasked with programming a robot on wheels to complete a series of challenges, in which the Waldingfield pupils took first and second place.
Mr Sanford said: “Computing is such an important part of the curriculum and the children were so engaged and enthused. We are incredibly proud of our achievements and hope to go back next year.
“As well as winning the competition, the children heard from graduates and employees about making a career in coding. It was inspiring.”
