Drake Primary School and Little Pirates Child Care
In Year 3 and upwards pupils learn to code using a block-based coding platform called Scratch. It is hugely popular right across the world for being an opened-ended tool for teaching pupils to create their own algorithms and sequences, looping, selection. You can choose your characters to animate and even add your own backgrounds! You can share and explore millions of other projects written by children and young people right around the world.

In Year 3 and beyond our pupils extend their knowledge of coding using a fun, hands-on gadget called a BBC Micro:bit. They are inexpensive to buy, and you can even borrow them from any Norfolk library!
