Code Playground is our programme to help you and your kids get to grips with the basic of coding.
We've created lots of sessions and videos for anyone who has children at home, or who is self-isolating and looking for something fun to do, check out #CodePlayground, #CodePlaygroundLive and #CodePlaygroundChallenge. They’re free coding resources aligned to the national curriculum for KS2 – but they’re fun for anyone to join in with. All the sessions are publicised across the Digital Eagles social media channels
Each week we promote 2 different sessions through our social media channels. Our Code Playground Live sessions will be showcased on Wednesdays at 10:00 (GMT) and our Code Playground challenges are live on a Monday. These work by us setting a challenge, through a short video and asking the kids to solve it. Later that week, we share the solution video so they can see how they got on. These help to further develop basic coding skills and also build confidence and problem solving skills in children.
Why is coding so important?
Coding is the language that we use to talk to computers and tell them what to do. It drives the software in every device, phone and camera – but you’ll find it in everyday household appliances too. Coding is part of the national curriculum too, and learning what makes tech tick could give your kids a head start in the world of work.
Give them a helping hand by bringing them along to a coding session with our Digital Eagles – experts who’ll guide your children as they take on fun challenges that introduce them to the basics of coding.
Learn to code with us
It’s a really fun way to learn the basics and develop digital skills for the future.
"Not only did the boys both code their own game, but the Digital Eagles explained it to them and to both me and Dad in a way we could understand, so that we could help the kids if we needed to."
