I'm itching to get started on coding. I was going to buy a Raspberry Pi for DS for xmas but I think he would get frustrated and not enjoy it as a present. I've got a book about kids coding so once I swot up I'll get us a Pi.

I don't have a clue about coding but my daughter will be learning it soon. Really interested in the free classes offered by Barclays.

In the interests if logic and precision I'd like to point out the categories on q15 overlap

For those of you interested in learning a bit more, DH is currently doing Scratch with our older DDs and they love it. DH is a bit of a geek so is also loving it fgrin. Google it - it's really easy to get started.

my 7 year old LOVES scratch, spends ages on it, i have to keep setting the timer to control her time on it. My hubby likes it too Poledra but then he is a programmer so I shouldn't be surprised.

oh and where can we find out about the Barclays coding stuff for children, I can't find it through search engines but my daughter would like that.

Q10- Larger scale WHAT? confused

We use Kodu at home with the children. Even the 5yo can use it.

Is coding in the KS2 curriculum now?

Naughtyornicename Wed 10-Dec-14 22:54:15

I didn't know Barclays did that! I used to do ye olde coding, ad on building websites in code, but now I can't be bothered. It must be my age! DH is on raspberry pi duty.

Done - but Erm you've spelt between wrong on the first page blush

Loulou000 Thu 11-Dec-14 14:02:13

Oh my goodness. Is this another thing I need to find time to do with my children? Had honestly never occurred to me. But I suppose older DD is only 7 now...

I gave up on survey..What is coding? Am I missing something..MY DS is also 7 so maybe something he does without the label but he has never mentioned coding

jackstini Sat 13-Dec-14 13:56:37

Not a clue what coding is and dd is 8 confused can someone explain please?

SuperSaint Sun 14-Dec-14 21:26:00

I have DD 11 and DS 8 and did the survey as I want to win £250 but couldn't really answer it as I have no idea what coding is and have never heard either of them mention it.

Does it mean writing computer programmes?
