Description - Kids Get Coding: Learn to Program by Heather Lyons

Learn to Program covers a key component in the new KS1 computing curriculum. We look at the basics of programming - what is an algorithm, basic languages and building a simple program. We then look at how simple programs can be developed to include decision making and repeat activities, and then how they can be fixed using debugging techniques. Throughout the book there are practical activies to assist learning, and links to online activities where they can practise newly learned skills.

Learn to Program supports the key stage 1 computing curriculum point:create and debug simple programs; use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.

Kids Get Coding is a fantastic, hands on resource for anyone looking to get started with coding. The four titles cover key areas of the computing curriculum with simple text and fun activities. Each title contains practical on- and off-line activities that are easy to follow and fun to try on your own or with friends.

Guiding young coders through each new idea is the Data Duck - a computer-programming mastermind here to help with hints and tips!

Kids Get Coding is written by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale of blue{shift} - a company dedicated to teaching children to become active creators of technology.

Alex Westgate's bright illustrations bring wonder and fun to this exciting new topic.
