Level 1: Introduction to Coding

Regular Junior Block Coding

Begin your child’s coding journey with a mix of screenless and screen-based activities, learning with various hands-on and interactive actiivities through multiple Montessori-approved educational robotics sets, combined with sequential & directional programming through multiple programming apps on their iPads!

Introduction to Coding involves engaging stories combined with programming music, expressions, directions and movements to create a fun and immersive learning environment. Use colourful physical blocks on the special programming board in order to move robots while exploring the different story maps. Complete coding challenges while covering topics such as shapes, animals, and planets.

Experimenting and seeing how their coding controls real-life robots and on-screen characters in real-time can help demystify technology, while developing their spatial ability through the use of directions and learning fundamental programming concepts such as order and sequencing


Key Takeaways:
1. Understand that coding is a way to give instructions and how it can be applied in the real-world
2. Use colours, patterns, and physical toys to learn programming basics while enhancing fine motor coordination
3. Familiarise with directions, orientation and movement to develop spatial ability
4. Learn about events, movements and sequencing and pave a path towards programming in ScratchJr

What to bring:
Just a curious, creative mindset + iPad & charger
