Programming With Blocks Syntax is a royal pain in the neck for beginning programmers. For a lot of kids learning computing or programming syntax is the single largest hurtle. It’s hard to teach both a new (programming) language and a new way of thinking and problem solving at the same time. This tends to be a big stumbling block for teaching a lot of basic computing concepts. For years there have been tools developed that remove syntax from the equation. Alice and Scratch are probably the most well-known and popular of these tools.

Scratching the Surface: coding with Year 2 So some of you may know that this year, after 13 years of being a primary classroom teacher, I've moved into a specialist teaching role as Head of Computing. This has been great for me and I'm really enjoying getting to teach kids all the way from age 4 to 11. With the switch from ICT to Computing and the increased focus on computer science, coding was naturally top of my list of content to develop and ensure progression across each year group. Our school was already in a great position since my predecessor had begun including the use of Scratch, Kodu and other software back in 2011. My aim though was to seek a wider range of software to help deliver unique learning opportunities in each year group. The release of Scratch Jr this summer really couldn't have come at a better time.
