Description The biggest change when ‘ICT’ became ‘computing’ in the new curriculum, was the focus on computer science and the importance of developing computational thinking. Children should be taught the concepts of computer programming throughout the primary phase, including developing skills in designing, writing and debugging programs. But this is not all about learning to write programming code, and children should first build a broad understanding of the concepts through a range of activities and approaches. In this one day course we will look at the key concepts of programming and consider a range of creative activities which can be used to develop this understanding in KS2 children. We will then explore some specific programming tools and apply these concepts in writing our own programs. You will leave with a range of skills which will help you deliver this element of the computing curriculum in your KS2 classroom, and lot of useful resources.
