National Coding Week

Posted: 16th September 2019


Pupils across the school have been busy this week, learning different types of code. The boys have been excited to create code that enables animations, solves complex puzzles and produces simple bespoke games. As part of our normal computer science curriculum and digital learning, lessons use simple block coding for example Year 1 are learning to code using Scratch Junior.  They are coding an astronaut to go into outer space by using the forward, backward, left, right and repeat commands. As the boys progress through the school they move on to more complex block coding in Scratch and Swift Playgrounds and then in Year 7 & 8 they learn Basic Python, HTML and CSS and Java Script.
