After running the after school clubs online, it was nice to start this recent coding club at Bishop Wordsworth’s School in person. The club went online during lock down which was great but nothing quite beats having everyone in the classroom creating together.
In addition to our regular tuition classes, First Coding will be running the following Scratch and Python coding workshops this Easter break. For more information and to book, please email email@example.com
Good luck to everyone who took part in the First Coding BAFTA Young Game Designers’ workshop. The quality of games produced over the six weeks was incredible. BAFTA have recently announced that they’re extending the deadline, so you now have until the 24th March to submit your games. THE VERY BEST OF LUCK!

As families will be playing their favourite traditional games over Christmas, an idea was hatched to look at building a variety of timers that people can use when playing. Here are three examples of our timers built using Scratch, they’re Super Mario themed!
