Year 6 Visit Bletchley Park

At The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park, Year 6 pupils had the opportunity to practise coding on the BBC Micro to create the snake game. They also used NotePad and Python the do the Turing test, a program designed to generate questions and answers – the purpose being to work out whether the responses were given by a machine or by a human.

They learnt about the evolution of technology by visiting the Colossus, the Tunny and the WITCH main frames.

They were amazed at the size and dimensions of the hard disks of the 1970s and 1980s and the amount of storage space they contained.
