Summary

Scratch is the most popular tool for computer programming in primary schools around the world, and is used independently by millions of children for their own projects. Its block-based, drag-and-drop system supports accessible, creative learning for children of all abilities and levels of experience. Children can easily make presentations, games, simulations, puzzles - the possibilities are boundless.

Led by an experienced and knowledgeable primary teacher, this series of events will get you up-and-running with Scratch. You will be able to lead your children in the development of computational thinking skills, a toolkit for problem solving that has benefits across the whole curriculum. You will also learn how Scratch can support learning across the whole curriculum, using contexts across maths, English and beyond.

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • increase skill and knowledge in the use of Scratch to teach primary computing
  • learn how Scratch can be applied in other areas of the primary curriculum
  • receive ready-to-use classroom project ideas that will engage children in upper-key stage 1 and key stage 2
