Coding is now, more than ever, becoming an incredibly crucial skill, and this is a very powerful moment for students - seeing the results of their coding come to life in front of their eyes!
Our Coding Camp will take place daily from Monday - Friday for children age 6-9 years old.
This course is designed to introduce children to the world of coding through the free computer programme, Scratch. It is designed for children who have zero, or very little, experience using Scratch.
This course will teach your child the very basics of coding. We will start by exploring the different functions of Scratch, and we will very quickly produce basic coding sequences. Children will get to code their characters - by getting them to dance, spin around and even speak!
Our Scratch Coding Camp will take place daily at the following schedule:
Monday 12th April to Friday 16th April 2021
9.00am – 10.00am
I began my journey into education in 2013 when I began an early childhood education and psychology degree. Whilst completing my undergraduate degree I worked in a Montessori Pre School. In 2016 I began working at a private pre school and was the lead teacher to the children who were five-years old. In this role I was focusing heavily on the teaching of phonics. I qualified in Read Write inc; this is a phonics system that teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. In 2017 I travelled to America and taught English at UCLA university to EAL students who were aged 6-18 years old. It was also in this year that I began my PGCE, where I qualified as outstanding in all areas. Since then I have worked in two very different schools within London. One school was in north London with very academic students. My current role is at a school in south London where I am working with children who are very disadvantaged. Both schools have given Holly fantastic opportunities to grow and develop my own pedagogy.
I believe that the best approach to tuition is to try to engage with the children and to find out what really motivates them to learn. Using this throughout my lessons is the best way to keep the children motivated in their learning.
I enjoy going to the gym and I am a regular at spin classes. With my boyfriend, I have recently started ballroom dancing lessons. I also enjoy being back in the country at home, walking through the forests and visiting the beaches.
