At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code.

They will be able to login at home and carry on with the projects that they have been working on, or start new ones.

This Term the children have been using Scratch to learn about movement, key controls, animation, sound, mouse control, adding backgrounds and motion.

All children will start a self-paced course on the Code.org website, which the children can continue at home. They will learn the basics of computer science and internet safety. At the end of the course, they will be able to create their own game or story.

year 3 had?quick?introduction?to Input and Output devices using an interactive game from the BBC website?and then, for a bit of fun?went?on to play? “Mind Flex”?a game that?reads brainwave activity to move a ball.

Year 4 had a go at typing code to make characters move rather than dragging blocks, they learnt that typing code had to be perfect!
