Hour of Code


These are great free Coding lessons from FS upwards and because many activities just use Arrows they are extremely useful when teaching SEN and EAL to code.

The activities start using simple jigsaws that the children place together, so that they learn to drag and drop and that later on these jigsaws will become coding blocks that will fit together. There are also some multiple choice questions where the children have to tick which code will solve the problem and also some Troubleshooting Tasks adjusting the code to make it work. I use these activities in my Coding Club as an easy way for the younger children to progress through these tasks and then make their way to the Angry Bird Activity on the Hour of Code.
