Coding is cool!
Coding is the new element of the Computing curriculum. Children are really good at using technology and the idea is instead of 'playing with a gadget, learn how to program it!' Programming requires innovative, computational thinking and and coding really enhances the way in which pupls can unpick tasks, look for the detail and find solutions. It's great for girls and boys!Many jobs that our pupils will be doing in the future have not yet been invented. So to start an opportunity of building mindsets that will become well equipped for the next generation is key and promotes lifelong learning.
Dare you to have a go at the hour of code - it's fun!
