Every machine or device that we use relies on coding somewhere along the line – and with roles becoming increasingly digitized, most of us would struggle to do our jobs without it. By learning to code, your child’s creative, analytical and abstract thinking skills will improve, and may even show in other disciplines. Coding is not just for future software engineers, it’s something that anyone can and should teach and explore!
The pre-school coding curriculum caters to children aged 4 to 6 years old and is designed with a play approach to teaching and learning, which emphasises active engagement and experiences. These are centred around activities that are relatable to the children; leading to inquiry, investigations, discovery and hands-on explorations
Goals and Objectives:
· Introduce pre-schoolers (4 – 6 years) to coding fundamentals such as algorithms and loops through a variety of activities.
· Develop a child’s creativity and problem-solving skills through coding.
· Build a child’s self-confidence and comfort in taking risks and making mistakes.
The Pre-school Coding Curriculum includes:
· Detailed lesson plans with learning goals and objectives that are in line with the 6 main learning domains from the MOE’s Nurturing Early Learners (NEL) Framework.
· 4 units comprising of a range of core coding concepts; e.g. Algorithms, Sequencings, Loops etc.
· Interesting Activity Templates, Games and Appendices for teachers to replicate for teaching resources.
· Booklist showing a synopsis of the books used in the lesson plans and sites where educators can find them.
