A Christmas Coding Activity with PRIMM

I’ve been researching pedagogies to support computing mastery and PRIMM is a programming pedagogy developed by Dr Sue Sentence and the Computing Education team at Kings College London based on the notion that its difficult to become successful at writing code if you cannot  read it.

I have created a Christmas themed step-by-step lesson plan that uses a simplified version of JavaScript and I’m using the PRIMM approach for teaching programming.

PRIMM stands for Predict | Run | Investigate | Modify | Make.  The approach enables teachers to support pupils by giving them some code that they first understand and then build upon towards making their own.
