The Visual programming engine is a familiar, block based programming tool which works on any modern computer or tablet. There are 3 differentiated levels which enable pupils to work independently without unnecessary clutter and distraction of script that they do not understand or need.
At Birchgrove we prefer to use Scratch and Scratch Jr but you are able to import your Scratch code to visual.
The Logo programming engine enables pupils to build varied and mathematically challenging scripts. The differentiated levels allow pupils to continue on from JIT turtle applying what they have learnt in a new context.
Level 3 encourages users to work independently or for teachers or pupils to create examples for sharing with the class.

You can use your BBC micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless. The BBC micro:bit has an awful lot of features, like 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games. The BBC micro:bit can detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading in – clever!
