Coding Club for Primary School

Charterhouse pupils and staff taught weekly Coding lessons to 10 local children in our Computer Room.

Aims

The aim was to provide an enjoyable coding learning experience for primary school children and give older, Charterhouse pupils the opportunity to teach.

Background

We approached our local partners to see if they would like to learn coding with our school facilities and older pupils.

The academic year of 21-22.

Resources

The administrative support to make practical arrangements.

The Charterhouse teacher's expertise and oversight, as well as two Charterhouse pupils' coding knowledge and ability to teach younger pupils effectively.

Primary school teachers willingness and availability to accompany their children each week.

Hour long weekly club in term-time.

Charterhouse covered all costs directly associated with the school to a total of around £1000.
