Get ready, get set, get coding!
DK’s Computer Coding Made Easy workbooks are a great starting point for children when learning to code. This Spring comes a brand new title in the series - Scratch Challenge Made Easy.
Following on from Coding Projects With Scratch Made Easy, this latest book aimed at Key Stage 2, builds on basic Scratch knowledge, providing step-by-step guidance to boost key skills and know-how. Scratch Challenge Made Easy includes more advanced projects for children keen to have a go at bigger, better Scratch challenges. Fun activities include a game where an onscreen football has to be kept in the air, a musical notes memory challenge and a game where monkeys have to be rescued from a skyscraper.
There is also an introduction to Scratch, explaining what it is and what you can do with it, plus information on how to find your way around the Scratch screen. Scratch Challenge Made Easy is perfect for understanding code, learning how to program and practicing computer language.
