Learning to Code

This is designed as a coding course that will introduce you to the basic for those who have never coded before. You cannot fail, you can only try. You will be coding before you even have a chance to say ‘I can’t do this’. This is a have a go course. It is free and plans to stay that way. The aim is to give you the skills to create wonderful works of digital art and/or simple games for people to enjoy. The beauty of this is that you can link it into a website for others to see, interact and play.

Learn to Code This is where to start if you have never done any coding before. It will give you an opportunity to see what coding is and how it works. It uses a very simple interface that requires no software to be downloaded and best of all it is completely free. It has been trialled at Harrogate Library and many adults and teenagers have enjoyed learning to code using this course.

Key Stage 2 Curriculum Children are never too young to start coding. This offers an alternative to scratch, there is a teacher book and pdf of the code to download and print off for the pupils to use.
