Coding at Danegrove
The Department for Education introduced a new computing syllabus in September 2014, which is compulsory for all students between the ages of 5 and 16. The New ICT National Curriculum in 2014 includes teaching children to do computer programming.
At Danegrove we are already ahead of the game. We have begun a coding club and Robotics Club led by one of our teachers.
The club has been successful and has caught the interest of our teachers.
Why should children learn to code?
Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works too.
Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer it strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking and supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology.
The aim is to give every child in the UK the chance to learn to code.
