Transition your students from block-based coding to Python with guided lessons, open-ended activities and the ability to translate block-code to Python in both directions.
To celebrate Computer Science Education Week and the launch of our Community Showcase within our award winning platform Python in Pieces, we’re inviting you and your school to take part in our first Python in Pieces coding competition.
Running from 1st December until 31st January the Python in Pieces coding competition makes for a great activity over the Christmas break or a project for the start of term.
Python in Pieces is an interactive coding environment, designed to build student and teacher confidence in the text-based coding language of Python. With the ability to easily translate from block-code to Python, in BOTH directions, students will quickly become empowered to progress from the expectations of KS2 through to KS3. The guided lessons allow students to manage their own learning and teacher solution guides enable teachers to support student learning at every step.
Designed by teachers to empower the specialist and non-specialist to teach KS3 coding with confidence. Enabling students to transition from block-based code to text-based code, whilst encouraging creativity.
Designed around the curriculum
All 18 lessons are mapped to the curriculum and have been designed for classroom delivery and to support home learning.
Guided lesson activities
Explainer videos, task lists, hints and teacher solution guides are available for every lesson.
Teachers can review whole class and individual performance. Whilst students can monitor their own progression.
