Weekly Coding Classes for Y1 – Y11 Students in Bossley Park

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Stage

Join our weekly coding classes for kids in Bossley Park at Bossley Park High School (currently held online). The Coding Fundamentals, Beginners coding course consists of four levels and 25 projects. The main goal of the course is to ensure students understand the fundamentals of coding and are able to create software projects including a famous Breakout game, developed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Slither.io, created by Steve Howse. Using block-based coding in Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab) students will be introduced to the main computer science concepts & coding terminology such as loops, conditionals and variables. Students will be closely guided through creation and will be allowed to work on their projects independently. By the end of the Beginners stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.

CODING ADVANCED 

Join our weekly coding classes for kids in Bossley Park at Bossley Park High School (currently held online). During the Advanced coding course, students will be introduced to a simplified version of Java language and will make their first step into text-based coding. Students will use an advanced integrated development environment (IDE) Processing to learn how to write code in Java. Students will both be guided through and encouraged to work independently on their games and animations in order to achieve a specific goal. The benefit of this approach is that students are able to accomplish a number of projects themselves, hence they understand the subject matter more deeply. By the end of the Advanced stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.
