June's Book of the Month - Coding for Beginners using Scratch

19th May 2016


You and your child can start from the very beginning to learn simple coding, following step-by-step instructions on how to animate, create your own games or even a virtual pet! Scratch is one of the most popular programs used in schools.

As an added bonus, your budding programmer can access the Usborne Scratch account! The Usborne Scratch account lets you view finished code for all the projects in the book. You can also access starter packs, with sprites and backdrops ready to code yourself.

Here's what Parents in Touch says about this book: "The clear explanations make every project easily achievable and will really give children confidence to tackle coding for themselves; the end results are great fun and very satisfying, giving children a strong sense of achievement."
