Code Club

We are very fortunate at Alverton to have secured the services of a volunteer from the community, Richard Zealley, to run a Code Club at the school each week in the Autumn and Spring terms. Now in its fifth year, the children have developed their skills sufficiently to be able to use the coding skills taught by their teachers as a basis for more challenging programming using the Python coding language to program a selection of lights, switches, motors and bots. These children are turning into confident and proficient users who are able to admirably support their peers in the classroom.

Recently, the children were able to work with Python in order to flash the code to a microbit, which was then utilised as a controller for a game of ‘Catch the Ghost.’ The Code Clubbers had great fun with this, rushing to and from the computers and the LED lights to adapt their code and change the parameters. It was a splendid example of coding for a cause!

Code Club takes place on Thursdays from 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm. If you would like your child to take part please contact the school office.
