Code Club

Code Club is run every term (Autumn 2, Spring 2, Summer 2) by our Computing and Online Safety Lead, Miss McAleese. Sessions take place after school from 3:15pm until 4:00pm in our Computing Suite. Year 3 and 4 sessions run either on a Wednesday or Friday. Year 5 and 6 sessions run on Mondays.


During Code Club, children have the opportunity to explore projects using alternative coding languages to those used in Computing lessons (Scratch, Logo, 2Code). Children use the online coding software Trinket to complete projects, which can be accessed for free on any computing device using a web browser. Please visit the Code Club website to see the types of projects children complete: 


Year 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 use HTML and CSS programming languages to create web-based birthday cards, comic books, wanted posters and more. 


HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the language used by computer scientists to structure webpages and it uses tags in the code to build the elements of a webpage (e.g. headings, images, text etc.). 

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the language used to style webpages and make them look nice (e.g. background colours, font type, image size, alignment etc.).


​​​​​​​Year 5 and 6

Year 5 and 6 use the Python coding language to create ASCII art, games such as Rock, Paper, Scissors and more.


Python is a computer programming language that is general purpose, so it isn’t specialised for any specific usage. Therefore, computer scientists can use it to build websites and create a variety of different programs because it has great versatility and it is easy to pick up for beginners. It is one of the most widely used programming languages today.
