1/1

Discovery Education Coding provides complete support for teaching coding in primary schools. Pupils 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.


  • Share and assign coding resources to classes or individual pupils

  • Seamlessly deliver lessons whether pupils are in person or online

  • Save planning time with comprehensive lesson plans and teacher support resources

  • Showcase pupils’ creativity by sharing the apps and games they’ve created.

Year Group

1 - 6

Contents

  • Teacher support resources - Explanatory videos help make complex concepts simple and provide visual illustrations and examples of what pupils need to achieve in each lesson.

  • Scaffolded learning support - Each unit is broken down into bite-size chunks that enable the pupil to master each skill before moving on to the next. With code validation built-in and a ‘console’ area to help pupils identify any mistakes they’ve made.

  • Free code opportunities - We encourage creativity with open-ended activities at the end of each unit to stretch pupils and challenge them to come up with their own ideas, adding new objects and actions to those they’ve used in lessons.

  • Realistic programming challenges - The contexts used throughout are interesting and motivating for pupils with a tangible output at the end of each lesson. Whether pupils want to make a space rocket fly, Red Riding Hood walk through the forest or feed a hungry monster there is something to inspire every pupil.

Impact

"Before using Discovery Education Coding some of our pupils were behind where they needed to be. Our teachers didn’t have the expertise to progress pupils in a structured way, so we were delighted to find that Discovery Education Coding could do this for us. 


The catch-up units helped us to upskill our pupils quickly and boost their confidence. Discovery Education Coding is very easy to teach. The resources are so good that each lesson runs itself. Short videos show what’s needed and demonstrate programming to children in a way that they can easily understand. And if a pupil has a question, staff don’t need to worry about not knowing the answer. The resources help children to problem solve independently." - Hannah Tudor, Headteacher of St Mary of Charity Primary School, Kent

Impact

“As a class teacher new to year six this year , it has been fantastic to have Kapow Primary’s computing scheme to ensure coverage of skills at an appropriate level for the children .


After contacting Kapow with some questions about the lessons, I heard back from the team quickly and was put in contact with the content developer for computing. Not only was I talked through each of the sessions but plans were updated and additional resources added to make the plans easier to follow. The discussion I had with the content developer greatly improved my knowledge of the subject and I now feel more confident to deliver these sessions to our students.” Rachel, year 6 teacher.
