For Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Primary School Students Only

Weekly Coding Courses for Y2 – Y6 Students

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Level

The Coding Fundamentals, Beginners coding course consists of four levels and 25 projects, which students develop throughout the course. 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.

PRO CODING

The Pro coding courses are designed for those students, who want to learn industry standard programming languages such as Java, Python and C#. In Java classes, students focus on Object-Oriented Programming concepts using Processing and create digital art projects and games. Python students learn to program Drones or Lego Robots to perform different tasks such as shark monitoring or playing autonomous soccer. In C# classes, students master their skills while learning 3D Game Development and creating 3D projects using Unity 3D. The main goal of each Pro course is to make sure students are able to create independent coding or robotics projects by the end of each term. Pre-requisites: Students can only take part in these courses if they have completed a full year of Advanced level and / or recommended by their teachers.
