On Saturday, 9th May Mr Norbury and Mrs Stamp took a group of twelve key stage 3 pupils to Manchester to take part in ‘World Scratch Day’ an event hosted at the Manchester Football Museum by Code club.
This was a fantastic opportunity for pupils from Beamont Collegiate Academy to submerse themselves in a range of coding experiences delivered through two workshops. Pupils formed two teams; Year 7 and 8 pupils began the morning learning how to code in Sonic Pi. They were challenged to code the Match of the Day theme tune while year 9 pupils developed their coding skills in Scratch as they were given the challenge of coding a football game. The teams later swapped sessions.
The pupils were left with a real thirst to learn more with pupils asking ‘when will we be organising another coding trip at the weekend!’
If you would like to try out coding for yourself you can join us at the Warrington Coderdojo, here at Beamont Collegiate Academy. The next Coderdojo will be on Saturday 23rd May, starting at 10.00am.

On May 6TH a group of 10 pupils enjoyed a trip to Go Carting. The Trip was arranged by Mrs. McNulty , the Pupil Premium Co-ordinator. The trip was arranged as a reward for attendance at revision booster and intervention classes, also some Saturday classes. The boys played Pool and raced in two races. It was an enjoyable evening and every pupil was a credit to the school.

Minecraft club goes from strength to strength.
In September the ICT department launched a coding (computer programming) enrichment club. We have since introduced Minecraft and the spring term saw the biggest numbers yet. ICT classrooms packed with avid students crafting and playing Minecraft on a weekly basis.
Pawel Chilkiewicz in year 7 has been a key student in helping the ICT department set up the club. Whilst the ICT department facilitates the club Pawel often leads sessions; teaching his peers how to craft.
There are many opportunities at BCA to get involved in coding. The ICT department are taking a selection of year 7, 8 and 9 students to ‘World Scratch Day’ at the National Football museum in Manchester on Saturday 9th May where students will take part in workshops to learn how Scratch can be used to control a Scratch based football game and using Scratch to read sheet music.
If you would like to find out more about coding club speak to a member of staff from the ICT department.
The club takes place in C3, Wednesday’s from 2.35pm until 3.35pm – Come and join us.
