Autumn term 2020
Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children.
The projects taught will teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Each session runs for an hour a week and one project a week will be covered.
Each term the students will progress and learn more whilst at the same time using their imaginations and making creative projects.
Our goal is to inspire children to build and share their ideas, learning along the way.
We want children to leave Code Club inspired to pursue other digital making activities, whether that’s in their spare time, in school or as a career.
We want them to gain skills that are useful to them - not only learning to program, but also learning about computational thinking, problem solving, planning, designing and collaboration.
Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works and how to build it too.
Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer - it strengthens problem solving and logical thinking skills, and is useful for a range of other disciplines, careers and hobbies.
We would therefore like to invite your child to attend Code Club after school on a Monday, starting from Monday 14th September. Each session will run until 4.15pm so please pick up your child promptly at this time from the main reception. This club is free to participate in and as there will be no more than 15 in the group, please return your form promptly to ensure a space as they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
