On Wednesday, Year 3 visited The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. The visit was part of their History work this term on developments in Britain since the end of World War II. The children went back in time from smartphones to the earliest computers, learnt about Morse Code, wrote programs to make traffic lights work and played on some retro games consoles.
