Whilst coding, we worked in pairs to take turns to summarise the computational skills used as we completed a sequence of program outcomes using Code Studio. We needed to explain how we had achieved the sequence and what bugs needed addressing.  

Pupil Voice


"I was making the same mistake again and again. I couldn't fix the direction my fish was swimming in my virtual aquarium. I spoke to a friend on my table and they knew exactly how to fix it. They talked me through the problem and I was able to make the changes needed."



"Summarising where I was going wrong has helped me to learn from my mistakes. Having to explain to a partner what I had faced during my coding will hopefully prevent me from making the same mistake next time."


Debugging - Explaining and understanding your mistakes!

A great video to explain debugging to any coding novices.
At SFDS we learn from our mistakes. We found that talking about what we needed to fix with our peers helped our overall experience.
