Kids will flock to coding thanks to Shaun the Sheep

The creative brain behind Wallace and Gromit has joined up with the Nominet Trust to encourage kids to get coding.

The studios character Shaun the Sheep – who first appeared in the Wallace and Gromit episode, A Close Shave, and later starred in his own TV spin off -is the inspiration behind the campaign.

Shaun will launch his own Game Academy competition where children can build sheep-based games using the coding platform Scratch.

The competition will run until September, to co-inside with the UK including basic programming as part of the ICT curriculum.
