Coding focusses on developing knowledge and skills relating to algorithms and coding. At canewdon we believe children should work practically. We also believe that children learn best when they are as engaged as possible.
In Key Stage 1 the children start off using programmable toys and then move on to using scratch. In Key Stage 2 the children use scratch to learn the concepts of sequences, repetition, loops, selection and variables. The children in all year groups are encourage to problem solve and develop their coding skills including predicting what code will do, debugging and designing apps and games.
