Designed from the ground-up for young children, our Scratch for Beginners: Mini Games course is the ideal step-up for students who have coded with Scratch before. Offering a unique blend of customisation and experimentation, the engaging lessons and hands-on projects serve to keep students focused and having fun!

Learning outcomes

About the fundamental building blocks of game engines; they will be able to create gravity, movement, and more! How to design systems able to detect collisions and track scores and other data. A number of advanced computational concepts and thinking such as functions, data structures, and parameters. Key skills needed for progression to text-based programming. Important logical reasoning and problem solving skills. How to independently code and create their own advanced projects and games.

Information for parents

We ask that - for at least the first session - an adult is available to help your child with their coding for the entirety of the lesson. In the following lessons an adult should be available at the start to help with any troubleshooting. You are also welcome to accompany your child for the remaining lessons too - we love parents and children learning together!

Policies

Lateness Policy

Customer feedback has focused on how students joining late can be majorly disruptive.

Therefore we have imposed a cut-off time for joining lessons. If you are 15 minutes late to a lesson you will not be admitted into the class. We will ensure late students can catch up by using the recordings of the lesson and additional class resources!

FAQs:

  • Can I book individual days?
  • Can I make the session more private?
  • Is adult presence required?
  • My child is a beginner, is this course still suitable?
