Primary curriculum last term
Here's the range of resources we provided last term to help support you bring coding to life with your pupils, in line with the coding curriculum.
These resources can be used to replay any lessons you might want to revisit with your pupils or if you missed any coding lessons last term.
What you'll need:
To get the most out of the coding sessions we’ve provided, you’ll need to be able to access these online resources. Here’s the links to the sites for you to test before you run the sessions.
Recommended sessions for this term
This term focuses on introducing your class to the scratch platform we’ll be using to code throughout the school year. They may be familiar with Scratch already but might not have used it for some time, so it 's a good opportunity to refresh their knowledge and skills. We'll also introduce the VEXcode VR platform which uses it's own version of Scratch.
We’re passionate about making coding fun, accessible, and educational. Here’s your chance to follow along with us online by booking your class onto one of our live sessions and instructions on how you could set up your own Barclays Code Playground club at your school.
Scratch bite-size learning
These three videos will build on your Scratch knowledge to give you a tour of the coding editor, introduce the built in tutorials and show you how to get started.
Music was our first love, it can be yours too. Introduce music into your Scratch coding with this fun session. Code along to create a simple melody and as well as learning how to create your own tunes.
Shapes are a good way of understanding how we programme our robot to carry out instructions.
Book your online sessions
In these code along sessions your pupils will create a simple and easy to follow project, with the help of our Digital Eagles.
