Every week on two different days, 60 children gather for one of our most popular after-school clubs – Coding Club!
At 3:30 on Tuesday, Year 3 and 4 coders gather in the computing suite to create games and animations using Scratch, under the guidance of Mr Wilkins. On Wednesday at the same time, Year 5 and 6 gather to continue their Scratch learning and code with Python under the guidance of Mr Webster.
Over the course of the term, the children attending the clubs are first guided to create animations and games under the direction of the teacher. After a few weeks, the children have the option of either continuing to be guided, or to start creating their own work.
The clubs are hugely popular and the computer suite is always buzzing with excitement and the chatter of children sharing ideas and solving coding problems as teams.
When 4:30 arrives, there’s always a collective groan – the time passes so quickly when you’re having fun!
Every term we re-open applications, so maybe your child could join next term!
