The New Computing Curriculum - Programming in Key Stage 2 - 26 November

This one day course will familiarise teachers with the programming requirements outlined in the new Computing Curriculum. We will look at the key concepts involved in programming with children and how this translates into activities that work in the classroom.

Throughout the day there will be the opportunity to:

  • Get to grips with the latest free and paid software and sites.
  • Learn child friendly programming on iPads, iPods and Android tablets.
  • Use programmable robots along with the most useful free and paid supporting resources.
  • Explore ways to teach and test algorithms, and longer processes, using non-digital methods.

Teachers will learn how to make programming an enjoyable, exciting and challenging activity for all of their children. There will be time to discuss approaches with fellow professionals and build programming into your own planning. This course is suitable for Key Stage Two Teachers and Computing Subject Managers.

The course will be held at The Innovation Centre Bradford on Wednesday 26 November and will cost £170 for subscribers or £180 for non-subscribers.  For further information or to book your place please visit the Courses & Events section of or contact on 01274 385618.
