Erase all kittens (and learn to code)

Year 6 are moving on from scratch to coding using HTML (Hyper text markup language). This is the code that lies behind websites and is a great way to learn some of the key concepts of coding.

There is a fantastic game called Erase all kittens which introduces children to HTML by encouraging them to edit the html code of a game to make it more playable. In playing this game children learn about html tags, headings and more.

Another great website is the Barclays Code Playground. This is a bit less complicated than Erase all kittens, but does teach children how changing variables changes the way a computer program behaves.
