What do Tile Hill Library, Y Bont Faen Primary School, and Liverpool Central Library all have in common? Answer: they are all Star Clubs who agreed to let us film their club sessions last term!
We wanted to make some films that showed different Code Clubs in action, to help us spread the word about our programme and encourage more schools and libraries to start up clubs.
The week before Christmas we jumped in a car packed full of equipment and headed across Wales to visit Y Bont Faen Primary. Despite the fact that they were all a bit tired after their Christmas show, the children (and adults) were very energetic and helped us create a great film about how Code Club works in a school environment.
