Coding Tutorials with Mr Barrowclough

Mr Barrowclough has kindly recorded lots of coding videos which you are free to use for your online learning. He has organised them into playlists. Each video is usually 15-20 minutes & each playlist is usually 2-4 videos.

He has sorted the project playlists into beginner, intermediate and advanced, we'd recommend starting pupils off on one of the beginner ones.

There are no resources they really need. They can create their own Scratch accounts for free at https://scratch.mit.edu/.  Mr Barrowclough goes through everything in the videos so the children will be able to pause and copy if needed. We hope these will be helpful for you.
