Python in Pieces has been designed by teachers to empower the specialist and non-specialist to teach KS3 coding with confidence. It helps teachers to transition their students from block-based coding to Python with guided lessons and open-ended activities.

With the ability to easily translate from block-code to python, in BOTH directions, students will quickly become empowered to progress from the expectations of KS2 through to KS3. The guided lessons allow students to manage their own learning and teacher solution guides enable teachers to support student learning at every step.
