Discovery Education Coding

Take coding from concept to reality

Teach your pupils to code

With Discovery Education Coding, pupils will gain a thorough understanding of coding concepts like algorithms, sequences and variables - as well as developing computational thinking skills through decomposition, logical reasoning and problem-solving.

Teacher support resources

Explanatory videos help make complex concepts simple and provide visual illustrations and examples of what pupils need to achieve in each lesson. Over 100 lesson plans also provide everything you need for your coding lesson including a quick overview, learning objectives, success criteria, vocabulary and key questions to ask pupils.

Scaffolded learning support

Each unit is broken down into bite-size chunks that enable the pupil to master each skill before moving on to the next. With code validation built-in and a ‘console’ area to help pupils identify any mistakes they’ve made, pupils are fully supported in their learning.

Free code opportunities

There’s also plenty of room for creativity with open-ended activities at the end of each unit to stretch pupils and challenge them to come up with their own ideas, adding new objects and actions to those they’ve used in lessons. Pupils can go even further with the free code area which allows them to write their own code from scratch using the full library of coding blocks available.

Realistic programming challenges

The contexts used throughout are interesting and motivating for pupils with a tangible output at the end of each lesson. Whether pupils want to make a space rocket fly, Red Riding Hood walk through the forest or feed a hungry monster there is something to inspire every pupil.

"Discovery Education Coding is a consistent resource and it works. As a leader, this is invaluable as there are no unexpected surprises. It’s a complete solution and very cost-effective. Our teachers rely upon it, why would we change it?"
