ANZAC Day is one of the most important days in the Australian calendar, and rightly so. One of the activities the students have been doing to commemorate this special day is cooking. We were incredibly lucky to have our neighbour, Mrs Harris, offer to make ANZAC cookies with all the year 6 students, a very generous offer indeed. The students had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed following the recipe to produce their goodies. In today’s curriculum, however, following a recipe has a new purpose – coding! Yes, a recipe has another term and that’s algorithm. The new Digital Technologies curriculum means that the language and concepts of coding can be applied to activities that the students are already familiar with, making it easier for them to comprehend. See, you learn something new every day.

Thank you for putting the group I was in on your blog, Mr Hope.
