In addition to the activities that come with the free coding panto, we have developed some more in-depth practical activities for KS1 (ages 5-7) and early KS2 (ages 7-9) that are available in our shop.

For KS2 (ages 7-11) we have a Scratch programming project featuring an Al the Robot sprite that you can also purchase.


Get with the Program has been working in collaboration with the Winchester Science Centre to bring a fully streamed, contact free, coding pantomime right to homes and classrooms, which has been crafted by our fabulous director, Shona Charlton.


Goldilocks is in a spot of bother and Al the Robot is there to help, right on cue!


Can they work together to save the Three Bears’ Christmas breakfast?


Combining computing and interactive theatre, this 20 minute show will not only get the children into the Christmas spirit, “Oh yes it will”, they’ll be learning coding concepts, programming and linking to the curriculum too. What better way to learn than to have fun at the same time!


Anyone can register with Winchester Science Centre to receive a free link to view the panto using this Google sign up form.

The popularity of the show has blown us away - we had 2,000 schools with an estimated 205,000 viewers signed up by the end of the first viewing week.

We have worked with Winchester Science Centre to create some will free suggested activities how to follow up the, but if you'd like a little more, see our Three Bears Activity Pack below.
