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.
GAME DESIGN VIDEO SERIES
Starting Friday 24th April on Facebook there will be a weekly game design video series. We would love it if you followed along and made your own version of the game – adding your own ideas too. The concept is simple, you’re one of many people in a town currently under lockdown and there’s a mystery to solve. You can only communicate with people by writing notes on paper aeroplanes and flying them to their destinations.
Salisbury recently hosted its first TEDx event and First Coding made an appearance talking about overcoming obstacles through creative coding. Click on the video below to watch the talk.
BUILD A MINECRAFT SALISBURY
Sunday 8 December saw the start of an ambitious project to rebuild Salisbury in the popular computer game, Minecraft. The event, held at the offices of First Coding on Castle Street, saw children invited to come along and join in with the build. 35 children took part in the opening event, and throughout the day, familiar landmarks such as the Poultry Cross and the Market Square slowly took shape.
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.
