Progress 8 explained in 3 minutes- Watch the clip
We are excited to announce that from 1st September 2016, Kingstone Academy Trust has entered into an association with Clehonger Church of England Primary School, with Mr Fisher now also becoming the Executive Headteacher of Clehonger; Miss Ransford is now the Head of Clehonger Primary School. This will in many ways resemble the type of arrangement already in place between Kingstone High School and Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School. There are many benefits to both organisations from such collaboration.
Code Club is a volunteer-led nationwide network of after-school
coding clubs for 9-11 year olds. Kingstone High school’s club will commence Tuesday 19th January and places are limited to 20.
Code Club is led by teachers providing step-by-step activity sheets for the children to follow so they can create games, animations and websites, learning the key concepts of programming at the same time.
Code Club will teach your child computing languages such as
Scratch, HTML/CSS and Python.
Learning to Code is a vocational skill - it changes the way children analyse and solve problems, encourages creative thinking and collaboration.
Code club will be held on: Tuesdays 3.15pm (for 3.30pm start) – 4.30pm
Led by: Ms C Rees
Location: Kingstone High School, Room M12
If you would like your child to join Code Club or would like more information, email Ms Rees to reserve your place.
