Primary Programming and Coding Workshop
Wanting something different to boost coding within your primary school? Why not book a workshop for your pupils in which we can bring in some of our exciting equipment!
Our sessions, running for primary school pupils, use practical equipment and devices to reinforce the sometimes abstract concepts of programming.
Bringing our class set of Sphero Bolt robots, we can set up coding challenges for the pupils to complete, having to program the robots to complete mazes, obstacles and much more.
We also have our class set of micro:bit computers which the pupils can learn to program, making animations, games and a range of other things.
- Meet the computer science objectives of the Nation Curriculum
- Learn about algorithms and debugging through the session
- Introduce loops and repetition through block coding
- Practical resources to reinforce coding elements
