Abbey Code Club

Code Club logo

The projects we use teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites.

Each term the students will progress and learn more whilst at the same time using their imaginations and making creative projects. Terms 1 and 2 use Scratch to teach the basics of programming. Term 3 teaches the basics of web development using HTML and CSS.

We want children to leave Code Club inspired to pursue other digital making activities, whether that’s in their spare time, in school or as a career.

We want them to gain skills that are useful to them - not only learning to program, but also learning about computational thinking, problem solving, planning, designing and collaboration.

GIGABITS
Giga would like some yummy fruit to snack on! Move her around using the mouse and collect all the fruit. Don't go near the mouldy fruit though as this will lose you ten points. And don't touch the spikes or it's game over! Enjoy!
