Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11.
Code Club create projects for their volunteers to teach at after school coding clubs or at non-school venues such as libraries. The projects they make teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games and animations. Their volunteers go to their local club for an hour a week.
Students will progress and learn, whilst at the same time using their imaginations and making creative projects. At Malmesbury Park we are using a programme called "Scratch". This allows the children to make scripts by dragging and dropping blocks into the right order to successfully complete their projects. They will eventually build up their skills to make their own games and animations.
If you are interested in using scratch at home it is completely free, and can be found here: Scratch
