100 Hours of Code at Holme Valley Primary School – Written by Year 5 students


Recently, we headed to Holme Valley Primary School in Scunthrope to run a 100 Hours of Code session with some Year 5 students. We really enjoyed the session and were delighted to receive the following thank you notes from the students.

Here is what they said:

Thank you for coming all the way from London to teach us about coding. I learnt a lot thanks to you that I could use in the future. I hope that games like this could be used in all schools. Your lesson was full of awesome, epic and cool things to tell the year 6 about as they are on residential.
Thank you so much, Ryan

Thank you for visiting us, the new app is amazing. I really enjoyed it so much. The best part was doing the coding myself. In my opinion, it was one of the best games I have ever played. In addition to this everything about it was hard but maybe some bits should be harder.
Thanks again

Thank you for coming into our school, we all really enjoyed it and would love it if you came again. Your game was FANTASTIC! I have showed my brother and he is addicted! Hakitzu is very interesting and lots of us have downloaded it at home.
We all had lots of fun,

Thank you so much coming in and teaching us that game everyone loved it! We’re all really glad that you came all the way from London to teach us it. I hope you can come again and teach us more games soon. It was fantastic, amazing, incredible when you came in. Hakitzu is a great game, I can’t wait to play it again. Personally, I thought it was really good.

I would like to thank you for your excellent visit yesterday. I loved learning about using and writing codes to programme. The amazing game Hakitzu was very educational and every single one of us enjoyed it. It was so good I am thinking about getting it on my own iPad! I really hope that you will create another fantastic game like Hakitzu for us all to play.
Thanks again for coming in to Holme Valley.
