More about Code Club
Woodbridge Primary School was one of the first 20 primary schools in the country to set up an after-school computer sciences code club which focusses on programming.
Last year 23 students from years 5 and 6 attended a lunch club once a week learning to program using Scratch. All were awarded a certificate having completed the level 1 projects in the scheme.
Currently, Code Club starts with scratch programming and then goes on to cover python, java, raspberry pi, simple electronics and sonic pi (music). Micro bits and crumbles may also be used.
In the future the club may go on to cover programming for websites using HTML and Java; programming in Python (also on the R Pi) and possibly Ruby. All have lots of support for teaching children programming at KS2.
Attendance at the club is free of charge (but we would not say no to donations of the odd Raspberry Pi to the school should you be so inclined…)
If there are any questions about the club please contact us.
Code Club is a year-long course. Sign-up is in September and is for the whole academic year.
A Raspberry Pi is a fully functional computer capable of running Scratch and other programming languages for less than £30. The Raspberry Pi was designed in Cambridge by a charity based company focussed on technology and education. (It does require a keyboard, mouse, tv and an SD card to be usable but if you have a tv already then the overall cost is less than £50 and all the software is free.)
