What is Think Big Coding?
Think BIG Coding Ltd, providing computer coding courses to children through after-school clubs, online learning & home tuition. Our easy to follow coding courses have been developed by us and are built around The National Curriculum. Aimed at Key Stage 1 & 2 Students our learning platform will guide children through easy-to-follow online & written projects in Scratch, Python & WordPress. With extra activities available through our recommended learning partner CodeCombat. Children learn to develop and evaluate coding projects that include the creation of animations, games and quizzes. During our Coding Clubs and when a student is happy with their project, we invite them to present it to the club on a large interactive classroom screen & to share within the coding community.
Our online learning portal allows pupils to work their way through drop fed lessons that will guide them through a structured course of study, it also tests their coding skills throughout their coding journey with Think Big Coding and before releasing the next lesson to insure every student is progressing with the skill-sets required for the next level. (Our library of coding lessons lessons will soon also be available to schools via our VLE and also under license). Every module a student completes is also a step closer to a new collectable coloured wristband that represents their coding level. Kungfucoding.co.uk
We use robots when available and include other coding activities, allowing children to develop skills using a multitude of tools. We all know that children learn in different ways, so to ensure your child gets the most out of our clubs, we also help with basic computer skills and fine motor skills. Do they play games during Coding Club? Yes, sometimes, but the games are all monitored and obtained via safe searching and the majority have been created by us and can also be created by the children using the online portal or in a coding club. We sometimes allow 10 minutes at the end of each club for some fun, safe gaming. However, we do encourage the children to look at the code of the games they are playing and, where possible, challenge them to change the code. Often the games played have been created by Think Big Coding Coders and Staff.
