CYPHER KIDS WILL BE FUTURE READY...

When your child leaves university they will be joining a very different world of work. Cars will be autonomous. AI will have replaced many existing jobs. The skills of value will be those that make us human: creativity, collaboration, problem solving & communication...

Cypher's creativity and coding camps approach learning through hands-on projects that capture children's interests, exploring fashion, art and music, linking to programming code. This unique combination helps children become future ready.

A  TYPICAL DAY AT CAMP_

>STUDENTS ARRIVE
Meet with their teachers, a mix of trained teachers and coding experts. Our unique teacher training equips them all to deliver the most creative and engaging sessions. Each student receives their own camp t-shirt or sweat shirt and their personal log in passport.

>TOUCHTYPING
Every camp allows time for students to familiarise themselves with and practice touch typing - a useful skill to enable fluent coding - also really helpful in building confidence and supporting special needs.

>HEALTHY SNACKS
We work with partners to provide kidfriendly snacks that are healthy and tasty.

>CODING/COMPUTING
Coding lessons (which they can continue at home using their own login) as well as core computer science concepts are introduced in child-friendly examples.

>LUNCH TIME
Students bring their own packed lunch, we provide water and a place to eat away from their work space and time to get some fresh air.

>OUTDOOR GAMES
Our camps are a full 360 ̊ experience - a day at camp is all about fun and exercise. We arrange team games and outdoor hunts to involve all the children and compete with the offer of a sports camps so no active child will miss out.

>PROJECT WORK
Our lesson plans include exciting take home projects as well as computing foundation exercises. The students’ learning is applied and practised through hands-on crafts and construction projects with exciting tangible results - a programmable curiosity box, an artwork on canvas, an architectural postcard, or a fun costume-swap app, to name just a few of our recent popular camp activities.

>ON-SCREEN/OFF-SCREEN BALANCE
Essential as part of their education is students learning an appropriate balance between on and off-screen time. All our tech projects include large parts that are off-screen making, constructing and drawing.

>HOME TIME
Students are collected and signed out before going home with the products of the day and their Certificate of Achievement.

OUR CURRICULUM - BEYOND THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM_

With our guiding thought of unrelenting curiosity, we inspire our students to explore and imagine, learning the foundations of Computer Science absorbed in creating tech-driven projects. Our curriculum is devised to bring the use of coding alive through real, tangible applications tapping into the aspirations of our students - whether they are inclined towards fashion, art and design, architecture and engineering, or science and nature. We embrace the STEAM Initiative, the value of adding Arts into the STEM curriculum.

"A grasp of coding is a classic generalisable skill: it fosters an understanding of logic, advanced problem-solving, and the processes needed to turn ideas into functioning systems."

- John Harris, The Guardian
