    From the first grade onwards, pupils attending the nine-year school programme learn about different content, types of tasks and ways to solve tasks and problems. To be successful, they require teachers that will encourage independent learning. Pupils use different types of thinking when they learn and one of the types is computational thinking, which is rising to prominence. The purpose of the action research, which was conducted in a group of second grade pupils attending after-school classes and spending time creatively, was to determine whether the activities in the scope of the Computing without a computer programme can help children learn about the functioning of the computer and develop computational thinking. In this way, pupils could gain computer knowledge in a playful and active manner through activity days, additional classes, workshops, optional activities etc. In addition, computational thinking would help them solve problems in other contexts as well.
