    It is highly recommended that you use two devices, one to work on, and the other for Zoom where the tutor will be sharing his or her screen and communicating with your child. A mobile phone isn't ideal for Zoom as the screen is too small.  JOINING THE CLASS  Your child will need to be in a quiet space away from any background noise. We can't always see your child's screen so they may need some adult supervision from time to time to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson.

    The Python Level 1 course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language. Students will learn to code in Python and create fun games and useful applications. Python is particularly suitable for this age group because it is concise, easy to read and has multiple applications in the real world (web development, app development and other scientific uses such as data science). It is the most popular programming language in the world and is widely used by all the leading tech companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook. This class is a great introduction to both fundamental coding concepts and the Python programming language. After this course, students will be comfortable coding in Python and have the confidence to extend their knowledge at home.
    • Learn Python syntax (structure)
    • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
    • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
    • Create and use functions
    • Use all of the above to make games and robot chat bot applications

    This course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language. Learn to code using your favourite gaming platform and develop fun Roblox games. Our Lua based code editor is particularly suitable for this age group because it is really easy to use and can be built up to more text-heavy coding once you get comfortable with the basics. This camp is a great introduction to both fundamental computer aided design and the Lua programming language. Lua is widely used as a scripting language by game developers across the world. By the end of the course, the students will be comfortable programming and creating Roblox games and will have published at least one game on to Roblox, which could end up helping them make lots of Robux!
    • Design a Roblox game in Roblox Studio
    • Learn Lua syntax and use it to script your game
    • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
    • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
    • Create and use functions
    • Use all of the above to make a super cool game

  • Scratch is the world's most popular programming language for primary school children. Scratch's visual coding blocks makes it particularly useful to learn coding concepts and computational thinking. More experienced children can also benefit from Scratch as we will cover more advanced aspects of the language. In this course, children will be learn to create stories; bring animations to life; code musical instruments; design exciting games; and control robots such as Lego EV3 or Sphero.

    This class runs like an after school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Scratch sessions last an hour.

  • MINECRAFT Coding Intermediate Level Take your Minecraft coding knowledge further with the new Code Kids Intermediate level Minecraft Coding course this Autumn. You will take your knowledge of creative game play to the next level as we explore the interplay between code, command blocks, and Redstone to create multi-player games. We will also introduce Minecraft JavaScript and Python coding to children. This will set them up for the next level of their coding journey which will use ‘real-world’ text-based programming languages such as Java, Python or JavaScript. Who is the course for? The course is aimed at children who are at least 9 years of age or those who have a good grasp of the beginner level concepts which were covered during the Autumn and Summer term classes. What we will cover in the Intermediate Minecraft course:
    • We will focus more on multiplayer games where the children can interactively play inside each other's Minecraft worlds.
    • Advanced data structures: using object Variables, Lists and Dictionaries
    • Use of Logic, and nested logic statements to make in-game decisions.
    • Advanced loops: using For loops and While loops embedded with logic
    • Using Functions to create reusable and clean code.
    • Combining Command blocks and Code to create highly interactive games
    • We will explore basic JavaScript and Python coding techniques. This is the next step up from block-based coding and opens up a whole new world of 'real-life' coding opportunities.
    This class runs like an after school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Minecraft sessions last an hour.
