Year Six were lucky enough to have a visit from some employees from Heathrow Airport. It was explained to us about the cargo which comes in and out every day, and that led us on to a special challenge. Using laptops, we worked in groups of three to use coding to control a mock set up of cargo planes.
Coding is used a lot in the airport and we learned all about how problem solving was needed, in order to ensure that the cargo is transported and arranged efficiently.

It wasn’t as easy as it looked and we had to make some adjustments to our coding to prevent our trucks from failing to collect the cargo or even crashing This led us on to thinking about the importance of coding. Whilst we all really enjoy our lessons, there is a real use for coding in everyday life. As we are learning about biographies, we decided to do some research about inspirational people who have made coding their career.
