Lots of our children love I.T. and want to know how to create their own interactive stories, games and animations. At school, we use 'Scratch' to teach them how to do this. We are very excited to let you know that our technology providers, Infotechdirect, have designed an online course which is available to our children for free.
This course is primarily intended for children in Year 5 and Year 6. No prior knowledge is assumed or required.
Although the course uses the Scratch programming environment, the aim is to teach terminology and concepts that are applicable to any programming language and will therefore provide a solid foundation for further study of text-based languages such as Python.
After completing this course, children will be well equipped to undertake more advanced programming courses at secondary school level.
