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_
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.
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.
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
Students are collected and signed out
before going home with the products of the
day and their Certificate of Achievement.
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
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.
We work with partners to provide kidfriendly
snacks that are healthy and tasty.
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.
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.
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."
