Modules

We offer three modules. They are each two hours long.

We offer flexible schedules and make sure each session is fun and engaging.

OBJECTIVE

Feel more confident about teaching the computing curriculum

AIMED AT

1. Teachers who want a comprehensive understanding of the computing curriculum at KS1 and KS2.

2. Teachers looking for practical activities and engaging resources that develop pupil's understanding.

Robot 1

Computational thinking

This session looks in detail at the new programme of study. We explain core concepts such as algorithms, abstraction and patterns as well as a little programming using floor turtles.

Robot 2

Programming

In this session, we start programming using Scratch and Code Club projects. We look at variables, debugging and iterative development, as well as cross-curricular coding activities.

Robot 3

The Internet and the Web

This session explores networks and the internet. We look at the Web in more detail, including how to code using HTML, and how search engines work.

Our approach

Code Club Pro training sessions are designed to keep your attention, get you excited about teaching the new Computing curriculum, and practising your new skills as soon as possible. We believe in learning through exploring — we won’t show you a powerpoint presentation on circuits, instead everyone will make a piano out of bananas. We won’t be able to teach you everything you want to know in a few sessions, but we’ll give you the confidence to start teaching computing to your classes, with a firm grounding of the subject.
