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!

Coding accounts for half of the Computing programme of study. Discovery Education Coding provides complete support for teaching coding in primary schools:

  • 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.
