Does your child wish they had magical powers? Have they ever wanted to be friends with Harry Potter? In a BRAND NEW course, we use the power of individual creativity to introduce students to even more Scratch-based programming by exploring the power of magic!

Join us during summer as students embark on a magical journey with any witch, wizard, warlock, or mythical creature they can think of. From hags to sirens, hobbits to goblins, even Shrek to the Smurfs, students will be able to create their own fantasy dream team and take their new friends on some supernatural adventures!

In hour-long lessons each student will use Scratch, a language invented by MIT, to learn key animation concepts. They will be guided through a series of challenges and tutorials, learning about core computing concepts like keyboard control, events, loops, and lists. They will then be able to apply all of these new concepts when they code their interactive and magical story; which once finished can be shared with you, your friends, and your family!

Across the week students will learn how to pair keyboard controls with movement commands, build more complex character interactions using functions and incorporate data structures into their designs. On top of this, each student will work with the teacher to focus on customising their supernatural sage to make it as unique and individual as possible. Finally, we regularly review each child's progress with playful competitions and exciting challenges throughout the course - not only does this ensure progress, it's also a lot of fun 🏆

This course aims to cover tougher coding concepts and logic than our Scratch for Beginner courses, and as such students who haven't coded before should start with these beginner courses first. Students who complete our Intermediate Scratch: Interactive Comics courses are often well placed to move from block-based coding to text-based coding. Not sure which course to pick? Get in contact, we'd be happy to help!

Our virtual classroom provides students with an innovative approach to coding that balances learning computational skills with nurturing students’ curiosity and sense of discovery in a small online setting! Setting this software up is easy and we will provide you with comprehensive set-up instructions before your lessons begin 💻

During this course your child will:
