We’re super excited to tell you all about Code Kingdoms, a fantastic new online platform which enables children to design their own game worlds using code.
We’re partnering with Code Kingdoms because it’s a great tool for our volunteers and teachers to use in their Code Clubs. We think children will enjoy exploring the games, building their own worlds (with the help of some cute and cuddly animals) and then sharing their creations with their friends and family. What’s on offer:
Code Kingdoms’ resources have been adapted especially for use in Code Clubs. We have produced some puzzle packs and provided dashboard and teacher guides to make it as simple as possible for clubs to start using this new tool as soon as they like!
The platform is free to use at schools and at home through the website, but there is also an opportunity to purchase extra content when outside the classroom through the Code Kingdoms app.
If the parents of our Code Club members decide to access this content, Code Kingdoms have very generously agreed to donate a percentage of the cost of purchase back to Code Club.
As a non-profit that relies on donations from the public and companies who support our work, we hope that this partnership will also help Code Club cover our operating costs, so we can continue working to bring free after school coding clubs to schools across the UK!
Let us know what you think:
We’ve loved using the Code Kingdoms’ resources and we hope you have as much fun with them as we have! We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback too, so do let us know how you get on!
