The Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students and is organised by Raspberry Pi Foundation and Hertford College of the University of Oxford.
It is organized in over 50 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing. Each participant answers questions that focus on computational and logical thinking.
It is completed online in school.
Who Can Take Part?
In our school all the children from Year 2 to Year 6 take part.
- Years 2 and 3 are known as Kits
- Years 4 and 5 as Castors
- Years 6 and 7 as Juniors
The children are all awarded certificates from Participation, Merit , Distinction and Best in School for those who perform really well within their group.
This Year’s Results
This year we are proud that:
- Jude was Best in School for Kits
- Noah, David and Eli in Castors
- Hannah for Juniors.
Not only that, the children in Juniors who are in the top 10% in the country are awarded a Gold Award. They are also invited to take part in the Oxford University Challenge run in February 2022. That invitation remains open up until they leave high school.
We are delighted that this year 3 children have been invited to take part.
Well done to Hannah and Tia who did so well. Bella has also been invited as she was only 4 marks away from the Gold award!
Last year, one of our pupils reached the top 10% in the country in The Final round of this next challenge! Go girls!
