Introduction to Coding Workshop

Now booking! Suitable for years 2, 3, and 4 pupils (aged 6-9)!
This Introduction to Coding workshop is a great way to get pupils started with code. Using visual programming tools such as Scratch, Kodu, MakeCode and Minecraft HoC, we’ll teach the fundamentals behind coding, and begin to look at how pupils can write their own apps and games. This is an extremely accessible workshop, suitable for all ages as an introduction to programming.

Our Introduction to Coding Workshop is a fantastic way to get young pupils thinking about coding.

Using visual programming languages, we will teach young pupils about coding fundamentals through experimentation. We’ll encourage them to play, and have fun, as they learn how to animate characters, create simple game mechanics, and learn coding basics!

We’ll also expose them to some real code so they can see how it relates to visual coding. They’ll get to edit code from a real game and see how the changes they make affect the gameplay.

This is an extremely practical workshop, run by real-world app and games developers, designed to get young children inspired to code!

In addition to providing you with follow-up lesson plans, and the source code for projects we create during our workshops, we can also provide Skype-based follow-up support, which is a super-cool and fun way for your pupils to stay engaged with coding and a great way for us to check-in and see how your pupils are doing and help them take coding further!
