An hour in the week that the children thoroughly enjoyed!

Nicola O'Connor
5th & 6th Class Teacher, Prosperous National School, Kildare

Coding helped my class develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills. It also encouraged pair work as they helped each other to try new things and find a solution.
