Bits and Bytes
Bits and Bytes is a sixteen week social mobility programme designed purposely for year 5 pupils. Feedback shows that it is enjoyed by pupils whilst being both aspirational and educational. Each week 20Twenty Productions staff deliver a two hour activity during school hours that support the Government’s Essential Skills for Life criteria. Pupils will, in addition to interpersonal skills development, develop basic robotic skills (planning, construction and coding) using Lego’s educational Mindstorms package. The final weeks of the programme involve a class based United Nations exercise that focuses pupils on the vital subject of climate change. Amidst these engaging activities pupils will also complete a Discover Arts Award and take part in a range of activities designed to expand each pupil’s awareness of the range of careers that are open to them.
