Years 1 - 2
Children in Key Stage One will study our 'Probots' and 'Animal Coding' modules. In 'Animal Coding', children learn coding in an engaging and
rewarding environment that utilises gaming elements to teach programming concepts. Some of the activities also teach text-based coding so children learn to program like a real developer. In ‘Probots’, children gain experience of physical computing as they have fun coding an award-winning robotic car that can navigate a course, draw shapes and respond to its surroundings.
Years 3 -6
Children in Key Stage Two will challenge themselves to two exhilarating modules, 'Code Combat' and Scratch Arcade'. In ‘Scratch Arcade’ module, children create retro arcade games which they share with children across the world. They consider design aspects and playability as well as solving difficult algorithms. In 'Code Combat', children will learn typed code through a programming game. Children will solve puzzles through learning the basics of Python including basic syntax, arguments, strings, loops, variables, and algorithms.
Mad Science Yrs 1 & 2
Children i n Key Stage One will study our thrilling 'Electricity' and 'Weather Whizz Kids' modules. In our hands-on Weather Whizz Kids module, it will challenge children to build a weather vane, create buildings to withstand natural disasters, learn about clouds, make a ‘breeze buddy,’ and make an anemometer. In our 'electricity' module, through numerous hands-on activities, children will explore static electricity, basic current electricity concepts such as voltage and resistance. They will build a charge detector, simple conductivity testers, build and experiment with simple circuits, and design and build their own series circuit flashlight.
