In Term 4, selected Year 3 students were invited to attend Code Club at the Library where we met weekly to code using the Scratch platform. The aim of Code Club is to provide a platform where students can explore and create interactive stories, games and animations using coding.
Coding is becoming an essential skill in our rapidly changing world and strengthens students’ problem-solving skills, encouraging critical and creative thinking. Scratch teaches the basics of coding by working through a range of creative projects that progress from simple to more challenging tasks. The Scratch platform is free to join and a great way to start coding, providing self-paced tutorials for anyone interested in exploring it. It is a fantastic activity to consider for the holidays and is well worth investigating. Special thanks to the students that participated and the Parents/Caregivers who attended to lend a hand.
