8 - 12 years 4 - 6 students to a teacher 10 sessions: Jan 8 - Mar 26

This course introduces your child to the magical world of coding through the best educational coding platform there is - Scratch. They will learn to think creatively, work collaboratively and build the foundations of algorithmic thinking (big speak for thinking logically). By the end of this course, we expect your child to have the confidence to design and build their own unique stories, games and animations.

Choose this course if your child is completely new to the world of computing, or has just started experimenting with Scratch, for e.g has done a term of coding in school or built a basic game on their own.

I have never seen my daughter so excited coming out of the sessions, to show me what she built

I loved it. The teacher was very patient and willing to help but made sure you tried to figure things out on your own.

FAQs

What are the pre-requisites for the course?

Well, as long as your child is at least 8 years old and curious, she/he will thoroughly enjoy learning Scratch.

Where can I find out more about Scratch itself?

Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. The MIT Scratch website has a lot of information and resources about Scratch. There's also a page for parents.

Q: There's Scratch, there's Python, Java, Web development, Robotics, Mobile App Development and a myriad of other coding courses out there? How do I choose where my child should start?

Scratch has been designed (at MIT) to teach kids how to code in a fun and interactive way. If your child is just about starting on his/her computing journey, or is a visual learner or if you are in doubt, Scratch is the perfect place to start. Once your child learns Scratch, a text based programming language such as Python is a natural (and great) next step.

Q: How many teachers would you have in a class?

We aim for 4 to 6 students per teacher to maximise both learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.

Q: I want to know more. How can I get in touch?

We will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Please feel free to call us at +44-75398-90926 or email us at learn@rivalearning.com or simply "Contact Us" here.
