Depending on their level and school they may focus on just one or a few of these, plus any others that are on the school’s syllabus.

Python lessons are some of the easiest of all programming languages, which is probably why it’s one of the most widely used code languages in the world. Python can be used in web and internet development, desktop GUIs, and software development. Some of the topics your child will learn include how to add two numbers, list comprehension, and data extraction.

Coding lessons as part of the coding curriculum

Now that we’ve broken down some of the specific coding languages, how do they fit into the wider computing curriculum? Coding is fairly new to the national curriculum and comes under computing. The UK was actually one of the first countries to bring coding into the curriculum. 🇬🇧

Here is an example of what primary school Coding and computer lessons include and also for secondary school. These can vary between school and region but you’ll notice the leap from primary to secondary regardless of where you’re located. If your child needs a Coding tutor, feel free to jump to the end, where we’ll let you know where to pick up a free trial class.

Primary school Coding and computer lessons

Some of the key topics taught in primary school Coding and computer lessons include:

  • Understanding algorithms and their relationship to programs
  • Using logical reasoning to find and correct errors in programs and algorithms
  • Using a variety of software on different digital devices to achieve specific set goals
  • Understanding computer networks such as the internet and how communication and collaboration work

No matter whether your child is doing primary school Coding lessons or higher, Coding tutoring covers all ages and levels. Who needs Coding tutoring?

Coding tutoring can benefit absolutely anyone taking Coding lessons. That’s because it can:

  • Give students more confidence in the subject
  • Give students expert guidance on Coding exams
  • Give students support on difficult topics
  • Give students additional knowledge outside their usual Coding course

A Coding tutor does more than just run through lesson notes too. Since they’ve already walked the same path as your child, they will know where to find additional Coding revision and past Coding exams to practise. 👍

What to expect in a Coding exam?

The style of Coding exam questions will vary depending on the level your child is studying at. Typically, the beginner Coding courses have multiple-choice questions. As they get more difficult they’ll incorporate some short-answer questions. They finally work their way up in complexity until Coding exams require students to use a programme to solve a problem.

As we mentioned, a Coding tutor will provide guidance and preparation for a Coding exam. This will come in a number of forms by helping your child revise their Coding lessons, going over past Coding exams together, and giving them additional material and exercises to run through until your child is proficient on all of the topics.

What to look for in a Coding tutor?

It’s imperative that you match the right Coding tutor to your child from the start to maximise the benefit of private classes. This should be based on personality, qualifications, and interests. If you opt for online Coding lessons it’s much easier to do this because you aren’t limited by your location.
