Here at First Coding we offer comprehensive coding lessons for children aged between 7 and 14 years old. Covering the important concepts of programming in a fun and creative environment, we help provide the building blocks for your child to build on their creative ideas whilst all the time gaining confidence in computing.
“I cannot recommend Jez highly enough. He tutored my son who found his sessions interesting, fun and wanting to learn more.”
We will introduce your children to coding through the visual programming tool Scratch, which is a gateway to developing in Python – a widely-used language. Not only will your child grow in confidence but they’ll enjoy bringing their ideas to life. Whilst your child is having fun, you can be assured that our learning programmes will support the curriculum and provide your child with skills for life.
A WIN FOR TEAM FIRST CODING
Team First Coding entered a game concept idea built in Scratch and we won Esport Wales tshirts for all the team members! First Coding will shortly be releasing the summer holiday coding workshop dates, so if you’re interested in building a winning game in either Scratch or Python then please check on either the website or Facebook page for further details coming soon.
HAPPY WITH A THIRD PLACE WIN
Sega recently hosted a game design competition and First Coding developed a game to enter. To demonstrate the power of Scratch and to highlight the many capabilities of the software, an arcade game was built using Scratch and submitted. Titled Sticky Gumball, this Scratch creation was pitched against some pretty big hitters including experienced Unity developers. The interesting part was that this game was packaged up as an independent game, and so there were no indications that it was built using block-based programming! This is something that First Coding teaches in a our Scratch classes – how to package up and distribute the games we make.

BRING FIRST CODING TO YOUR SCHOOL
Here at First Coding our service speaks for itself, so we work on recommendation. If you like what you’ve seen then consider recommending us to your school for one of our FREE interactive talks about our coding projects and discussions on how First Coding can help bring coding to the classroom.
