Every year, millions of children around the world participate in the Hour of Code - an opportunity to put computer science learning at the forefront with enjoyable activities.

Every year group has chosen their activities to supplement the learning they already do in Computing and some photos of the children in action are below.  

Coding learning is of course a skill that is growing in importance in today's workplace, but most important are skills such as creativity, problem solving and resilience which along with an ability to code make a formidable skill set that will be useful for many different career paths in the future.  The Hour of Code activities alongside the Computing curriculum aim to provide a good foundation in these skills in preparation for KS3 and beyond.
