Primary ICT / Computing report templates and statements of progression

Primary ICT / Computing report templates and statements of progression

New UK Curriculum for Computing in Prmary assessment and reports statements for year 1-6 at three levels of progression across Digital LIteracy, Digital CItizenship and Computer Science. Use the sentences as a guide for what to include in your reports for the computing segment. While these do not cover the entire spectrum of assessment for computing, they are a good representation of the most notable standards per strand for the age expected ability and represent what should be taught. Could also be used in a backwards planning model to also develop learning objectives, success criteria and lesson plans or an entire vertical curriculum.

School Robot Challenge 2018 - design a space robot and moonbase (ages 4-12)

School Robot Challenge 2018 - design a space robot and moonbase (ages 4-12)

This competition is intended to engage and inspire school children and students through the subject of robotics and space exploration. It aims to provide a compelling introduction to computer aided design, robotics, and space exploration through the design and modelling of a virtual robot at work on another planet. The competition is open to all school children and students in the UK from the ages of 4 to 18. There are two competitions: one for ages 4-12 and the other for ages 13-18. What will I learn? The software accompanying this challenge (links below) will provide participants with a basic introduction to 3D computer aided design and modelling, as well as providing a medium to explore links between creative art and computing. This competition will allow entrants to explore and visualise their own ideas about the future uses of robots in space, and aims to be inspiring, educational and fun. Who is running the competition? The competition is run by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network (UK-RAS), a network of UK universities specialising in Robotics and Autonomous Systems. It is part of a family of competitions organised for the UK Robotics Week, which runs from 21 - 29 June 2018. A panel of judges, consisting of leading scientists and engineers, will select the winning designs in each age category. What are the judges looking for? The judging panel will select their favourite robot and planetary environment. We are looking for creative entries: this could be a robot servicing a spaceport or outpost, or a robot undertaking scientific investigation and exploration on an unusual planet, or any other application of robots in space that you can think of! The judges will choose winning designs that are innovative, interesting, fun, compelling, technically advanced and visually appealing. How do I enter the competition? All you need to do is follow the instructions outlined in the instruction pack! If you get stuck please email us. The competition is split into 2 categories by age group: 4 - 12yrs and 13 - 18yrs. Deadline for submission of entries: Friday 15th June 2018, 23:00 BST

Powerpoint and exercises explaining  Coding, it's uses, and Scratch - what are they?!

Powerpoint and exercises explaining Coding, it's uses, and Scratch - what are they?!

This is a very simple 14 page / slide presentation to explain what coding and code is, along with a brief overview of Scratch. I find that often the children I teach have used Scratch before in class but don't always understand what code is for. For older children you could also talk about how code can be used in negative ways such as when ransomware or virus attacks are in the news ( example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WannaCry_ransomware_attack). I have also included some questions within the slides to check the children's understanding and an idea for a follow up exercise. I have attached the files in powerpoint 2016, older version of powerpoint compatible (97 -2003) and also saved the slides as a .pdf in case you don't have powerpoint.

Assessment, Computer Science, using GCSE Grades - adjusted Progression Pathways

Assessment, Computer Science, using GCSE Grades - adjusted Progression Pathways

CAS Progression Pathways (original source: https://community.computingatschool.org.uk/resources/1692 ) I use CAS Progression Pathways to asses my pupils and due to changes in area of assessing pupils progress without levels, I had to adjust this to fit our school policy. We use GCSE Grading system joined with progress within a grade. Progressing, Grade 1.....Grade 9 B - Beginning E - Emerging D - Developing S - Secure M - Mastered Example Students can achieve 1e (Grade 1 - emerging). I am using separate grades tabs to record pupils work (tab P, 1, 2, 3,..) but entering the information into the cells in these worksheets will automatically fill the Progress worksheet where you can see the overall progress for each student. If you are doing your work based on topics (Algorithms, Programming and Development,...), you also can see pupils progressing in separate areas of the curriculum. All this is automated and you have to enter the grade only once into Grades tab.

Integrating iPads into a Primary Classroom: One Journey

Integrating iPads into a Primary Classroom: One Journey

Where did we begin? Setting the scene. There are many examples of schools using 1:1 iPads, ChromeBooks etc, but I wanted our 1:1 project to be tailored specifically to our school. One of the main points to consider is - it really needs to be personalised; there is no one size fits all approach here. What our school requires from them will differ greatly from what other schools want out of them. There is no right or wrong way to implement them and the outcome will greatly influence how you proceed with other classes in your school. My Year 4 classroom was the research class for this project for a term and a half and we have a firm plan for September on how we will transfer them to the next teacher. I'm confident that the children were making the most use out of the iPads in my Year 4 class and as Computing leader; I will need to ensure they keep that level of use in Year 5 and beyond. How will they cope at high school, if they don't have a 1:1 iPad scheme? An interesting thought to consider.
