Course Description

Scratch can be a great way to teach computing in KS2, but it can take some getting used to. This session is designed to give teachers the confidence and understanding need to get the most out of Scratch. We will begin with the very basics, helping teachers get to grips with the key concepts that underpin computer science. We will look at ways pupils can progress with Scratch and think about different project ideas that can form the basis of classroom activities. Teachers will also be given a chance to review some of the CLC’s favourite lesson plans and Scratch teaching resources, including resources from the ScratchMaths EEF funded research project.

Having attended this course teachers will...


... Know how to use and teach Scratch

... Understand the relevance of Scratch in the computing curriculum

... Be aware of a range of resources that support teaching and learning with Scratch
