The 4 Missions!
In Coding Success 2, you are invited to complete 4 missions with your pupils. Teaching resources and a ‘Flexible Learning Plan’ are available for each mission and there are suggestions for supporting and challenging pupils within each adaptable learning plan. The mission activities can also be adapted to an individual teacher’s preferred teaching style and/or level of confidence with coding.
Choose Your Route:
Coding Success 2 has been designed so that teachers can choose a route that meets the needs of their pupils and there are 3 routes to choose from: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Here is a really useful document to help choose the route that’s right for your learners:
CS2 Resource Box
Once you have downloaded the Coding Success 2 digital resources, a Resource Box will be sent to your school which contains materials to support the use of the digital resources. It includes:
6 Bricks Box (contains 12 bricks in total)
An outline of the 4 Satellite Support Missions for your classroom.
Blow one up, let it go and watch it fly – like a rocket! For use in Mission 1
Coding Success Stickers
70 celebration stickers for your pupils to enjoy.
Your pupils can grow their own cress – hydroponically!

REALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SPIKE PRIME APP
In December 2022, LEGO® Education launched the SPIKE™ App 3 which is an entirely new app and a firmware upgrade which has been built with the classroom experience in mind.
IMPORTANT: In terms of Coding Success 2…
- Projects written in the SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App) currently will NOT work on SPIKE App 3. So if you are in the middle of Coding Success projects, stick with SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App)
- There is currently no option to code in Python using the SPIKE App 3 (it will be coming later in 2023). So if you are doing Python coding – stick with the SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App). Coding Success 2 ‘Advanced Materials’ can only be used with SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App)
- There have been some changes to the Word Blocks. The videos are recorded using SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App) so if you upgrade to SPIKE App 3 you may notice some small differences.
- IMPORTANT: Your LEGO SPIKE Hub will update its firmware when you connect it to the SPIKE App 3. You will know it is an updated SPIKE Hub as the Power Button will shine green on power-up. Once it is updated, you won’t be able to use it with SPIKE App 2 (Legacy App).
