SEND guidance Barefoot Computing

This document offers guidance on how to deliver the computing curriculum to pupils with special educational needs who are working below national curriculum levels. The document outlines the different computational thinking concepts and the P scales with which to assess children against.

River crossing activity

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to use logical reasoning to solve a problem and can be adapted using the PowerPoint to develop understanding of algorithms, decomposition and debugging. The activity gives pupils the opportunity to solve the traditional problem of a farmer trying to get a chicken, fox and...

Musical sequences activity

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to follow a sequence of instructions, create an algorithm for other people to follow and to understand that the order of instructions are important. The activity gives pupils the opportunity to create sequences of colours to make music and enhances the Music, Computing, PSHE...

Lego building algorithm

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to create a clear algorithm for someone else to follow. Pupils will create a simple model from Lego and then take photographs to create a visual algorithm to help other pupils to recreate their model. As they remove one block at a time they are learning to decompose a problem...

House patterns activity

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to spot and reuse patterns to support their understanding of the Computing curriculum as they develop their computational thinking. Pupils will identify similarities between different houses and use them to create their own house.  

Head, shoulders, knees and toes algorithms

In this activity SEND pupils will learn to follow instructions, to create an algorithm for people to follow, to debug an algorithm and to use repetition in a sequence of instructions. Pupils will create a set of instructions to sing the well-known song ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’.

Getting ready for school decomposition act

This in this activity SEND pupils will learn to break down a problem into smaller steps, to create a sequence of instructions for someone to follow and to understand that the order of instructions are important. Pupils will decompose the act of getting ready for school by breaking down the activity into smaller...

Dance-Move-Algorithms

This activity gives SEND pupils the opportunity to make up a dance routine and create a clear algorithm for a partner to follow. Pupils will learn to follow instructions, create a sequence of instructions for people to follow and to understand that the order of instructions is important. Dance move cards will...

Creating patterns activity

This activity gives SEND pupils the opportunity to look for patterns, complete sequences, create their own patterns and develop their understanding of algorithms by making instructions for others follow. Pupils will be challenged to create step-by-step instructions to create simple algorithms and opportunities are...

Bee-Bot route decomposition activity

This activity gives SEND pupils the opportunity to create a program to control a single Bee-Bot around a complex course. Pupils learn to break down a problem into smaller parts, create an algorithm and a program to move a robot to a specific point and to detect and correct errors in the program by creating obstacle...
