This site provides Computing teachers with an invaluable resource to support and consolidate classroom activities with meaningful homework tasks.
The resource includes exercises on text processing, modelling, data handling, programming, hardware, control, data representation, the BBC Micro:bit and many other topics.
The approach in developing the site's exercises is based on storytelling and humour. There is an emphasis on developing literacy within the material. To aid understanding, the exercises are supported by copious illustrations.
What kind of things do students say about the exercises on the site?
Impact of Bullying
"Enjoyed doing it. You should always tell a teacher or anyone you trust if you are getting bullied. The exercise is like a PSHE recap because it helps in a way to deal with it and give victims of being bullied confidence"
BBC micro:bit 1 SOS 1
"Really enjoyed doing it
you need to go onto micro bit to actually create your duplicate sound it was quite hard to understand what you had to do hence why i got 0% for my first attempt because i had not realised that i had to create my own matching sequence." (final attempt 100%)
Logo "Don't guess the command as there is a scale along the side and bottom of the graph. This website makes homework fun (kind of). It can be hard but it depends on how you see things."
"Building a Model for a Holiday - Make sure you complete the spreadsheet on the computer. I did it on paper first and it went wrong. No need to put in £ signs."
