Users Vs Creators
Kids are constantly using technology today, but how many are learning to create it?
Every primary student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. The recent changes in the national curriculum have recognised the need and ability for children to start early.
The basics of coding help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for a wide variety of future careers.
- Develop interest in topics in the new National Curriculum.
- Prepare kids for the transition from Primary to Secondary School.
- Provide children with an opportunity to develop their computer science skills.
- Develop children’s’ confidence to engage with applications and their development.
We achieve our objectives by providing a learning environment that is genuinely fun and has them excited to come back every week!
We have a club for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
We can cope with all abilities within the key stages. We have a variety of activities ready for the ‘high flyers’ who progress so fast we struggle to keep up, and also those who find things a little more difficult.
More Than Just Code
Junior Game Creators is more than just about code. Each week is a fun group learning experience.
Everyone works towards a common goal, in teams, on challenges that will stretch their creativity in art, design, maths, problem solving, team work and communication.
In the same way that learning to read enables learning, learning to code opens up a world of exploration and opportunity.
Easy To Implement
Learning computer science helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity.
By starting early, students have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path and makes the transition to secondary school less intimidating.
By using games as a focus even the most difficult concepts are no longer barriers but simply a way to a desired result.
