What is Java? Java is a programming language used in a wide variety of applications including mobile phones, desktop computers, websites, TV devices and game development. Java has a similar syntax to English and is ideally suited for children who have coded with Python before. Java, as with other languages, is a coding language where logic is used and with regular practice, the fundamentals of Java can be understood. 

What is the purpose of learning coding? Nowadays, coding is considered a basic but fundamental literacy skill within the digital age. Therefore, it is paramount for children to learn and have a good understanding of how coding and computer science work so they will also be able to understand how technology works and how technology continually evolves around us.

The importance of learning Java: Java has a wide range of applications and is one of the most popular coding languages currently used by programmers and computer scientists. Java is an ideal language to learn for children with previous experience using Python as it provides a challenge for children to implement their existing knowledge of syntax and coding terminology. Java is an object-orientated programming language that introduces new concepts such as abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism and inheritance. Java is highly regarded due to its powerful development tools, opportunities and community support. 

About this course: This face-to-face Saturday course has been designed for children to enjoy, have fun and learn. Our face-to-face courses are small to enable tutors and children greater scope for interaction, dialogue, questions and answers. We motivate children to develop their understanding of computer science and specific coding languages while having fun. We also stimulate children to be creative. We teach children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution.

What we teach:  This face-to-face course has been designed for children to enjoy, have fun and learn. Our face-to-face Java autumn courses are small. The rationale behind having small groups is to enable tutors and children greater scope for interaction, dialogue, questions and answers. We also stimulate children to be creative. We teach children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution. We also foster the development of resilience. Sometimes, some children tend to give up easily. We teach children that they need to try for alternate solutions to a given problem in a logical and creative way.

Academic impact: Coding and programming help children learn mathematics, in a practical way, since they start to visualise abstract concepts. Children are encouraged to see the real-world application of mathematics instead of relying solely on abstract figures that sometimes they cannot relate to. Children might also improve in writing because of the development of coding skills. Children learn the value of planning before starting a task. They also learn how to be concise but accurate.

Differentiation: At Richer Education, we understand that ‘one size does not fit all‘. Therefore, our tutors and mentors differentiate the content of our sessions. We ensure that all children, regardless of their level of knowledge, are engaged at the appropriate level and pace.
