This term’s CODE CLUB has started again which will give children aged 9-11 the opportunity to learn the coding language Scratch. The projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children learn, by making games and animations. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally over a 10 week course.
