Since returning to school Year 7 having been making the most of the opportunity to use the computers in the Cyber Café to practice their coding skills using Scratch.

After spending some time learning about the theory of programming they were able to have a go for themselves during lockdown, through remote learning lessons set by the Computing Department, and this is being continued back in lessons.

Scratch is a great programme to start learning the basics and is freely available for anyone wanting to develop their skills further.

In school students are putting together sequences of code to create animations and games, designing their own concepts and having fun seeing their ideas come to life.
