Creative Coding (3 - 5 years)
Did you know coding is on the curriculum from 5+? MAMA.codes offers fun and creative coding clubs that support the Computing curriculum. Our unique approach to teaching coding and computational thinking is the ideal launchpad for young children. We use storytelling and jokes to build fluency, plus plenty of “unplugged” physical coding games. We use tablet-based free coding app “ScratchJr” – so it’s helpful if children bring an iPad or Android tablet with them (kindly ensure that the tablet is fully charged and that the Scratchjr app is installed and functioning prior to class). Children learn generic coding concepts they can then transfer to any other coding language.

At each session, children can experience Chinese culture, festivals and their legends; this may include sampling homemade rice dumplings, mooncake making, paper lanterns and lion dances!
