Part of the Australian Curriculum next year is computer science which includes coding.
What is this, you ask?
Computer science involves creativity skills, problem solving skills and logic. One way students can do this is by coding. There are literally hundreds of websites on the net about coding but I am going to include a few here.
Computer Science Education Week
This is a chance for students and teachers to create something using coding. They include tutorials which you can do at any time over that week or any time of year in fact.

Here is the link to a great Australian calendar showing events you and your class or school could be taking part in over the next few months.
For a fun finish to the year, why not join the Hour of Code during December. Here is a great page with lots of links to coding sites. A way for students to learn programming easily on any device they use. Even a planning page for teachers so you know the day will go right and you wont get stressed.
