Discovery Education Coding provides complete support for teaching coding in primary schools. Students will gain a secure understanding of coding concepts like algorithms, sequences and variables, as well as developing computational thinking skills through decomposition, logical reasoning and problem solving. And best of all: students and teachers alike will be able to demonstrate their creativity by creating their own apps and sharing them with their classmates and colleagues!

- Step-by-step lessons guide teachers and pupils through a thoughtfully graduated sequence.
- Video tutorials present the code that pupils will learn and highlight correct terminology.
- Debugging tasks and error codes help pupils problem solve.
- Free code ignites pupils’ creativity.
- Comprehensive lesson plans ensure all teachers are fully supported.
