With the closure of all educational establishments in the UK we are currently offering our activity packs free of charge to help you continue to educate and support your children at home throughout this period.

The BBC micro:bit is a simple to use and easy to learn educational development board designed by the BBC for use within the classroom. Due to the simplicity of block programming and plug-and-play electronics, it's incredibly easy for beginners of all ages! The micro:bit helps support natural progression for learners allowing them to move away from block programming to JavaScript and MicroPython.

We understand that as teachers planning your lessons can be a long and tedious process or a parent who would like their child to develop new and exciting coding skills, it can be difficult to know where to begin.

To help you save time and effort, we have developed five fun and engaging activities for the micro:bit that can be used in the classrooms alongside their current learning or as a fun one-off activity to learn and develop new skills. 

Note: All lessons require a BBC micro:bit
