Class V Computer Science

Department:  Lower School

Class V Computer Science

Class V students continue to build their coding skills in three units throughout the year using Scratch, Micro:bits, and LittleBits. Students build upon the skills learned in Scratch during Class IV to enhance the animations and games they create using variables and functions. LittleBits brings knowledge learned in Class III Science about simple circuits and integrates it with the coding skills they have gained to challenge students to build simple circuits and then code it to amazing things! Touch typing is taught and practiced in the classroom using Chromebooks. Google Suite applications such as Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sites are used for writing stories, reports, and presenting research information.
