Yo! Wolves supports School of Coding half-term activities
Children enjoyed activities with School of Coding last week, just one of dozens of events offered by Yo! Wolves to keep young people occupied and entertained during the half-term holidays.
Seven to 11-year-olds were able to learn how to code games, build and code robots and code and fly small drones. They also enjoyed a free lunch at the sessions, which took place at Tettenhall College.
Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, paid a visit and said: “It was great to visit School of Coding and see first-hand how much our children and young people are enjoying the events and activities that they are providing here.
“It’s so important that we can offer opportunities for children to learn, have fun, socialise, and eat for free at many venues during the half-term holidays. We know how difficult school holidays can be for many families at the best of times and, particularly this year, we hope this has given a little support for parents this half-term.”
Clare Norton, Operations Manager at School of Coding, added: “We are delighted to have welcomed Councillor Beverley Momenabadi to School of Coding to see one of our holiday clubs in action and experience some of the things we offer to young people in Wolverhampton. “With a growing digital skills gap, we strongly believe that coding is a skill that should be viewed with the same reverence as reading or writing, and one that should be part of every child’s education. Our holiday clubs are just one way that we are working towards that.”
The Easter Yo! Wolves programme will be launched in mid-March, offering hundreds of events and activities for children, young people and their families during the Easter school break. Please keep an eye on the website, www.yowolves.co.uk, for more details.
