  4. Hi Alice and Hannah, I have never used QR codes before but after reading your ideas I think it is something I would like to try. Although I expect it maybe tricky for some children to understand the concept around QR codes I can see that it would work well. After this initial activity, the children could work in groups, to design their own QR codes. Then each of the groups could try to follow the instructions. This activity would link across the curriculum.
