Teaching coding couldn’t be simpler with these fun games and activities from Busy Things for Schools! We have a whole host of fun coding resources that are perfect for teaching programming concepts to primary school children. Children can quickly create, run and debug their own simple programs starring our wacky characters!
Our coding resources feature our funky Beard Man character, who is sure to engage children as they learn to make him to walk, dance and collect stars. Your pupils will be having so much fun that they won’t even realise they’re learning the basic principles of coding, like repeat loops, conditionals, events and variables. Before long, your pupils will have progressed to creating their own "call and response" game.
Our Busy Code programs are designed to teach code in a way that's intuitive and fun, and are built by linking simple blocks together. Children can drag and drop the blocks to assemble a program and then watch it play out on the screen right before their eyes!
If this is your first time teaching coding in primary school, don't worry! Our coding resources are accompanied by two comprehensive teacher guides for Key Stages 1 and 2. These can be downloaded and printed off to help you plan your lessons. You’ll also get access to lots more teacher features, all designed to make your job that little bit easier!
Plus, when you subscribe, you’ll get access to the full range of Busy Things resources and activities, including phonics, literacy, geography, science, history, music and art, and maths. All of our games have been given the thumbs up by our expert team of teacher advisors, so you can be sure your pupils are learning core curriculum-linked skills that will help you to meet your learning objectives.
