    Never written more than a few hundred lines and never taught it, but http://wiki.python.org/moin/IntegratedDevelopmentEnvironments might be worth a read.

  5. As above, I use IDLE at KS4 and, while the KS5 code is longer and more complex, I don't see IDLE being anything other than fine for the job.

    I have a few self taught kids who prefer Notepad++ for the familiar markup and shortcuts but no specialist IDE need AFAIC.
