Programming at KS2 in the Computing Curriculum - Full Day Course 27/6/14

The programming elements of the Computing Curriculum are challenging & most teachers will need training support to deliver them. This Curriculum Innovation course to be held at the Innovation Centre Bradford will teach attendees how the elements can be taught in an engaging manner through KS2.

Delegates will examine the central programming concepts and how these can be taught through free and paid resources on computers, tablets and through non digital methods.

During this course we will:

  • Use a ‘hands on’ approach to create our own programs that involve the use of key concepts in the Computing Curriculum.
  • Work with free and paid software on computers and tablets such as iPads and Android devices.
  • Learn about programming physical and virtual devices.
  • Work through the supporting resources available to all subscriber schools.

We will explore the use of activities that build in progression and differentiation through the key stage. There will be a chance to swap ideas with other attendees and to try out a range of devices.

This course is suitable for Key Stage Two teachers and ICT subject managers.
