CfE Early, First and Second level ICT planners that tie in with the benchmarks. They provide potential learning outcomes and some direction of what you could teach in each section of ICT. Some of the wording is based on South Lanarkshire Council systems but could easily be adapted for any authority. These are only suggested outcomes for each year and are fairly ambitious at points (but possible!). They follow DCS progression but are listed as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc. These are my own development and are not authority endorsed planners! Hopefully they can be of use. Some basic wording sourced from Dundee planners.

Worksheets with lines to encourage correct letter sizing. Worksheets with word walls at the bottom to help with sentence building. Open ended challenge questions for early finishers. Word walls for many of the different titles (easily editable for other titles). Board games for some of the titles to develop word recognition (easily editable for other titles).

The activities are all open ended and designed to allow pupils to work independently, allowing teachers to spend more time with another group without interruption.
