As a rare learning opportunity, the BBC invited 40 of our pupils on Tuesday this week to a Live Recording of a “BBC Live Lesson” which was based on computational thinking using a Micro:Bit. The small microcomputers, Micro:Bit, which were distributed for free to every year 7 pupil last year in the BBC’s biggest initiative in getting students programming, was put to the test in the Live Lesson at the controls of the TARDIS in an exclusive collaboration with the team behind Doctor Who.
The excited 40 Broadoak pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience on the day, including watching a live productions team, meeting celebrity presenters and some pupils even took the limelight and were chosen to play a role on screen.
Well done to all of our pupils on their sensible conduct and smart appearance on the day. We most defiantly out shone of all the schools in the studio.
The live lesson is available to watch on the BBC Iplayer. Simply search for BBC Live Lessons and follow the links on the site.
