Primary teachers facing fresh computing demands have a friend in BETT Awards finalist 'Espresso Coding', writes Aled Williams
The mere thought of having to teach coding to a five-year-old could bring some teachers out in a cold sweat. But this idoesn't have to be the case as Espresso Education has created a new service to empower even the most technophobic teacher to ensure that all of their children, from foundation phase to key stage 2 can learn the wonders of coding in a fun and meaningful way.
Espresso Coding is clearly set out with a comprehensive scheme of work linked to Curriculum 2014. There are simple and easy instructions for all, tutorial videos and teacher-friendly lesson plans. As the children take on each aspect of a coding concept they are shown how to build on their previous understanding and learning to help develop their knowledge.
