For Villa Maria Catholic School Students Only

Weekly Coding Courses for Y2 – Y6 Students

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Intermediate Stage

The Coding Fundamentals, Intermediate coding course consists of four levels and 25 sophisticated software projects, which students develop using block-based coding in Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab). During this course students will learn and apply more complex computer science concepts such as booleans, recursive algorithms and lists. Students will also be introduced to the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI), user interface design and user input validation. Students will be given an opportunity to define and develop their own projects independently. By the end of the Intermediate stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.

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 will focus on Object-Oriented Programming concepts using Processing and will code digital art projects and games. Python students will learn how to program Drones to perform different tasks such as shark monitoring or the basics of AI & machine learning. In C# classes, students will 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 projects by the end of each term. Prerequisites: students can only take part in these courses if they have completed a full year of Advanced level and / or recommended by their coding teachers. By the end of the Pro stage, all students will go through a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining achievements and progress of their child.
