Summer Courses starting in July

Computer Programming Scratch (Age 6 - 9)

Course Details

This course is designed to introduce children to the world of coding through the free computer programme, Scratch. It is designed for children who have zero, or very little, experience using Scratch.

This course will teach your child the very basics of coding. We will start by exploring the different functions of Scratch, and we will very quickly produce basic coding sequences. Children will get to code their characters - by getting them to dance, spin around and even speak!

Coding is now, more than ever, becoming an incredibly crucial skill, and this is a very powerful moment for students - seeing the results of their coding come to life in front of their eyes!

Our Computer Programming Camp will take place daily at the following schedule:

Monday 20th July to Friday 24th July 2020

10.00am – 11.00am Children 6-9 Years Old - Scratch

No Registration Fee

Meet Sophie!

I am a fully qualified primary teacher. I undertook my PGCE with Teach First back in 2015. Since then, alongside my teaching, I have tutored children both in and out of school for a range of purposes - such as SATS, 11+ and independent schools entrance examinations. I have taught the full breadth of years from Yr1 through to Yr6, but the majority of my experience has been in KS2. Before teaching, I was awarded a BA (hons) classical civilisation degree from the University of Warwick. I am currently a curriculum leader at my school, and am also currently the art and music curriculum leader – I have always had a love of the arts. Previously I was also the history, geography and RE curriculum leader.

My classes have always included a high percentage of children with additional needs; I pride myself in always taking the time and effort, whether for my school class or my tutees, to make my lessons meet the needs of each individual child. I have very high expectations for my students, but I also firmly believe that learning should be fun!

In my spare time I love to be active; you’ll find me out running, at a yoga class or up a climbing wall. I am also very creative and love brushing up on my art skills at home, before sharing them in the classroom. I am also passionate about languages, and am currently learning Spanish.
