Just in case it's of any use to anyone, I thought I'd post a link to a blog that I have been using to teach some programming (Python) to a group of Y9 kids (~13yrs old) in the UK.
Some of the posts on the blog are not about coding, but you'll easily find the relevant ones!
They include what I think is a full-proof guide to getting started (just using IDLE).
This is the first one.
