European Code Week: Newhaven Pupils Crack The Code

Now in its 7th year, Code Week aims to make coding more accessible to young people, and to highlight its importance for future jobs. Over 4 million people in over 80 countries took part in 2019.
 
Pupils at Harbour Primary School have been busy designing apps and computer games using Discovery Education Coding, an award-winning coding platform for primary schools. The children have learnt how to program fun games from scratch using colourful characters including aliens, princesses and even HM The Queen!
 



Christine Terrey, Headteacher of Harbour Primary School said:
 
“Our children enjoy their coding lessons, and we know that learning to code supports the development of both their mathematics and writing skills. Children have to problem solve and use a logical approach -  important future life skills!
 
Discovery Education Coding is one of the UK’s leading primary computing resources, used by over 2000 schools across the country. The award-winning platform is currently being used by thousands of teachers to support blended learning in the classroom and at home.
 
Code Week takes place between the 10th and 25th October 2020. Find out more at www.codeweek.eu
