Term 4 registration is open now – https://thinkbigcoding.wpengine.com/product/pay-for-coding-club/
Parent accounts are now linked to Children’s accounts, this will allow you to view your child’s progress on the learning portal ( www.Thinkbigcoding.co.uk )when then start using it together with their Scratch accounts ( www.scratch.mit.edu ). Please be aware that we are carrying out essential maintenance over the break and upgrading to a new platform. This will rectify any connections issues that have sometimes occurred to to concurrent user restrictions.
The first lesson is Scratch 1 – the children simply need to navigate to the bottom of each lesson and tick (Mark Complete), this is because it is related to setting up a Scratch account, something your child has already done during club. Scratch Lesson 1 represents and white wristband, Scratch 2 needs to be completed alongside their Scratch account where they will need to add each lesson to their Scratch portfolio, Scratch 2 represents a yellow wristband and so on.
The courses can be completed during clubs or at home. If your child is unable to attend an After School Club, there is an option to join as an online member.
Instruction to access your child’s account can be found below.
