Weekly Block-based Coding Term Classes for Kids ages 7-10
We do understand that many would think that its a huge deal for a 5-6 years old to effectively learn coding and English at the same time? At Saturday kids, we understand the mindset of a 5-6 year old and engages them in play based learning because we know kids learn best when they think its playtime.
In this beginners course, our aim is to get our preschoolers used to being immersed in an English speaking environment, to understand instructions, to ask questions, to communicate with friends as well as to present their thoughts all in English. The output from that learning will then be their ability to program robots, build animations and collaborate with their classmates to complete projects.
At the end of the day, our aim is to get them creative with code and discover the wonders of tech – inventing the future starts right here.
What if you could learn, have a blast, and create something awesome and impactful – all at the same time?
Each term-time session spans 16 weeks, totaling 16 hours of class time.
Launching Mid April 2021.

Saturdayland Explorer Beans course is a progressive, year-long programme consisting of 4 modules, each comprising 16 weekly classes of 1 hours.
While kids are recommended to complete modules in sequence, we understand that schedules change; students who sign up for one module are not obliged to sign up for subsequent ones.
Children will create their original stories in SaturdayLand. There are a school, supermarket, zoo, and many others in the town. They will share what happened inside of SaturdayLand using English and coding. Through the course, kids will gain the joy of learning, the confidence in speaking English, curiosity to ask questions, and friends who learn together.
