Last week, we had the privilege of running a three day Coding Course for a group of 30 students at Royal Grammar School in Guildford. We had visited the school a year previous, running a combination of our BBC micro:bit Workshop and our Coding Games Workshop over the course of a day, so it was really lovely to be invited back. This time, we were invited to run a three day course with a group of students, aged 11-13. It was amazing to have three whole days with the same group as we could cover a range of programming...Read More

Last month we visited Thomas’s Clapham to run some BBC micro:bit Coding Workshops with their two Year 8 classes as part of their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Maths) week. Each pupil in the class had been given a BBC micro:bit last year, when they were in Year 7, as part of the national rollout. They had already learnt some of the basics, so it was a fun opportunity for us to come in and create some fun and exciting projects with the classes, encouraging them to take coding further. We ran through a quick refresher, using the...Read More
Last month we visited Herne Hill School, the largest independent Pre-School and Pre-Prep in the UK focusing on 2 to 7 year olds. This beautiful school, in its gorgeous South London setting, is known as the largest feeder into the reputable Dulwich Schools. The teachers and pupils were all so enthusiastic and welcoming. We worked with the school to introduce their pupils to coding. We spent a half day with each of their Year 2 classes. During our sessions, we introduced the pupils to coding, teaching the fundamentals of programming using drag and drop coding blocks. The pupils learnt about controlling objects...Read More
Last week, we visited Leigh on Mendip First School to work with their pupils, introducing them to game development and teaching them how to get started with coding. The school itself was absolutely lovely. Pupils are organised into two classes. Reception and Year 1 children are taught in Owl Class whilst Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 children are taught in Eagle Class. The staff were incredibly welcoming, and the children were so enthusiastic. We took Year 3 and 4 in the morning for a half-day workshop, and then Year 2 in the afternoon. The majority of our...Read More
We’ve had a busy six months running our brand new Games Development Workshop at a number of primary schools across the UK, and we thought we’d finish up the academic year by sharing with you how we helped one primary school in the UK get to grips with coding. On Monday 20th July, we visited Glebe Primary School, based in Ickenham, part of the London Borough of Hillingdon. Glebe were keen to engage and involve two year five classes, so we worked with almost 60 pupils throughout the day. Working with each class, we presented and discussed games and game design...Read More
