All Courses at Sandringham School

  • Interested in writing computer programmes?

 

  • Enjoy Scratch programming in school but want to be challenged further?

 

This course is aimed at year 5 and 6 children who wish to develop their coding skills above and beyond what they are already studying in the primary school curriculum.  It will start on the assumption that they have no text-based coding.  

The children will explore Python, Lua, C# and more, learning over time to write applications using familiar forms, buttons, menus and text boxes. 

Although the club has started it is still possible to join as the children work at their own pace with the support of the teacher and other students. If  your child would like a free taster session,  please email carole.heselton@verulam.herts.sch.uk or call 01727 754113 to reserve a place.

The club is taught by Graham Bridge, an Old Verulamian.  He is currently a Stemnet Ambassador and Codeclub volunteer.

This is an ideal class for people new to Yoga. Regular practice of yoga will help to bring about a healthy body and mind. The class will involve yoga postures, incorporating breathing exercises, relaxation and some meditation. You will need to bring a mat, blanket and water to drink.

 

For a trial session of the yoga class, please call Carole on 01727 754113 or email carole.heselton@verulam.herts.sch.uk.

 

Feedback from students:

"Definitely will re-enrol, the class was most enjoyable."

" I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the yoga class and would be keen to carry on."

"Karen is a good teacher - we get through a lot and she has a very gentle, relaxed approach."
