Activities to do at home

Possible activities to do at home from Elms Computing

The main coding websites I would recommend for the children to access at home are:
This is a really good site created by Google on e-safety. It includes an Internet game called Interland where children can learn more about staying safe online and cyber bullying.
This website allows the children to use their coding skills to create animations and games. There are loads on tutorials on YouTube for this site, or if they click on “ideas” on the homepage there are also a lot of step-by-step tutorials for various projects.
This is another great site for coding activities. Popular ones are dance party, minecraft and Star Wars. Alternatively, if they click “learn” from the menu they can access various projects, covering different topics, for all age groups (NB the year groups -grades- are based on the American school system).
If the children have access to an iPad I would really recommend parents getting these free apps for their children to go on...
Pages and Keynote (both of these apps have free iBooks for them that you can download from Apple which are a really quick way of learning how to use the app). Pages is similar to Microsoft Word and Keynote is similar to PowerPoint. If any children fancy experimenting with music on their iPads then GarageBand is great and also has a free iBook to teach the children how to complete a simple project. 
Tynker is an excellent app where the children can access two main coding games and some other activities for free. Space Cadets is great for yrs 3-4 and Dragon Spells is good for yrs 5-6. 
For years 1 and 2 I would recommend Tynker Jr and Coding Safari (that second one has a small fee - I think £4.99). Both of these are simple coding apps.
One of the most popular apps I have used in lessons is called SpriteBox. There is a free version of this which is great and also a full version that parents can pay for if the children want more. 
The more able or older children could try using swift playgrounds (a free app from Apple). There is another free iBook by Apple called learn to code 1 & 2 which they would need to use alongside this. 
On a separate note, families may want to use Apple’s Zoom app to connect with friends and family via group video chats during this time.
