Introduction to Scratch for KS2 teachers
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 to get the most out of Scratch. We will begin with the basics; getting to grips with the drag-and-drop programming interface as well as the key concepts that underpin computer science. We will discuss ways pupils can progress and think about different project ideas that can form the basis of classroom activities. In addition, teacher will be given the opportunity to review some of the CLC’s favourite activities and teaching resources, including materials from the ScratchMaths EEFfunded 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
