The Primary Computing Curriculum

The Blackpool Computing Curriculum has been put together by Blackpool teachers to help deliver high quality teaching within computing. It provides yearly overviews of learning objectives, planning for units of work and 'step by step' guides for supporting programming throughout all year groups.
In KS1, lessons will mainly be teacher led. KS2 will focus on active learning - enabling the children to take more ownership of their own learning. You will need to make sure children can have access to the website and can read through the tasks they need to complete. For the first few lessons support will be necessary to ensure children can navigate the website effectively. Less able groups will need to be supported.
