Introduction to Scratch for KS2 – REMOTE

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, teachers will be given the opportunity to review some of our favourite activities and teaching resources, including materials from the EEF-funded ScratchMaths 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.

Doing more with Scratch

Scratch is London CLC’s go-to tool for teaching KS2 computing in a way that is flexible, encourages creativity and provides the complexity to challenge pupils and teachers alike. This session will help teachers gain a more detailed understanding of Scratch, including some of the new features available in Scratch 3. It will link these new skills to some of the big ideas in computing, with classroom activities that exemplify these links.

Having attended this course teachers will...

  • understand some of the less used features in Scratch.
  • know how these features can be used to extend KS2 pupils’ learning.
  • be aware of a range of resources that support teaching and learning with Scratch.
