Barefoot Bytes Hand Washing Poster

Welcome to our new fun, flexible learning activities, Barefoot Bytes!

Here you’ll find a fantastic range of activities that are great for slotting in between lessons to keep your pupils engaged and excited about learning again. These Bytes are designed to teach children about the necessary problem-solving skills they need, such as algorithms, decomposition and patterns while boosting morale and injecting fun back into the classroom.

Ages 5-7

A set of eight quick collaborative activities for 5 – 7 year olds, to encourage computational thinking without the need for tech. For use in the classroom and flexible learning at home.

Download the Barefoot hand washing algorithm and construct your own, create a crazy group character, decompose a celebratory dance into precise steps, or make, evaluate and improve your own music using home-made musical instruments.

AGES 7-9

A set of eight quick collaborative activities for 7-9 year olds, to encourage computational thinking without the need for tech. For use in the classroom and flexible learning at home.

Create a class gratitude tree and spot patterns and similarities, invent a new game and write an algorithm for others to play and test, or connect with your friends to make a class flag decomposing and abstracting information as you go.


AGES 9-11

A set of eight quick collaborative activities for 9-11 year olds, to encourage computational thinking without the need for tech. For use in the classroom and flexible learning at home.

Use your logic to find out ‘Whodunnit?’, evaluate how best to transfer a text message across the room without writing it down, or use your artistic skills to design patterns for a group rainbow garden.
