Menston Primary School is a registered member of Code Club, a nationwide network of volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9-11. Mrs Wilson is the club leader at Menston, ably assisted by some digital leaders and Code Club volunteers. The club runs every Friday from 3.15 to 4.15 p.m. The club has around 20 dedicated members of Year 5 and 6 pupils, who are working on exciting projects using Scratch, a free online programming language. Projects include a memory game, a balloon popping game and a paint program. Here are some examples of some of the projects: Balloon Pop game
Lost in Space
Boat Race game
As well as coding with Scratch, we use HTML to create web pages. We have recently started to code BBC Micro:bits and are looking forward to coding with Raspberry Pi.
