Year 6 Information and Data – Binary Code

Year 6 have been looking at the difference between data and information in terms of computing. We explored how information (text, images and sound) is input into a computer, stored as data, then can be read back as information in the output. We then explored how computers store digital data as Binary, which is a 0 or 1.  0 and 1 can be for on and off or input and output.  The children decoded messages in binary and wrote their own messages to each other. We also counted in binary too.
