What is Code Club?
Code Club is a nationwide network of after-school coding clubs for children. You can find out more at codeclub.org.uk Our event at Newtons of Bury is free for children in between the ages of 7 – 14. You will need to bring your own equipment and stay with your child to help them through the process. The Code Club provides a section of time once a month for the children to sit down and code with others in a coding environment.
How does it work?
Code Club provide step-by-step activity sheets for children to follow so that they can create games, animations, and websites, learning the key concepts of coding at the same time.
What do the children learn?
Code Club have resources to teach children Scratch, HTML/CSS, and Python. Learning to code is more than just a vocational skill: it changes the way children analyse and solve problems, and encourages creative thinking and collaboration.
