South Hylton - Sucess with Primary Computing

1st September 2015

Lovely start to the new academic year delivering 'Success with Primary Computing' INSET Day to the staff of South Hylton Primary School (Sunderland).
The day was designed to give all staff a thorough understanding of the requirements of the Computing programme of study at both KS1 and KS2 and to provide practical and engaging examples of how to deliver Computer Programming, Digital Literacy and eSafety sessions.
All resources from the day can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
The day ended with an eSafety session where staff members were shown a wide number of resources and activities for the teaching of eSafety at both KS1 and KS2.
Animate 2 Educate can deliver any element of this training day as part of an INSET day or staff meeting at your school. For more information e-mail 
Staff members enjoyed a computer programming workshop where they experienced Helicopter Rescue and Pat Puzzler from Busythings, Kodable, A.L.E.X., Lightbot Jr, Lego Mindstorms: Fix The Factory and 2Code (part of Purple Mash).
During the digital creativity session staff members experienced a wide range of exciting and stimulating apps. One of the favourites was Comic Life 3 (shown below).
BrainPop offers a wide range of fabulous videos and activities for use across the curriculum. This includes many eSafety videos that are excellent for use with both KS1 and KS2 pupils.
