Embedding computing in Key Stage 1 and 2 Jon Chippindall (@drchips_) [email protected]

Presentation outcomes Inspire confidence to plan Computing across your school’s curriculum Provide examples of how Computing can be used to enrich and enhance learning across the curriculum Demonstrate progression across the primary phase

Overview Why embed computing across the curriculum? (How) Literacy and numeracy examples (CS) Task 1: Ideas for literacy and numeracy Topic examples (CS) Task 2: Ideas for topic Next steps and questions

Why cross-curricular approach? Purpose & context for computing BLANK PAGE


Stimulate/sc affold learning

Time constraints of curriculum

Stimulus We say ‘We are going to write about…’ J. Cabot My Diary

24th June in the year of our Lord 1497, Land sighted…


Literacy KS1 -


Computational thinking: Pupils thinking algorithmically Oral instructions with EYFS/KS1 developing directional vocabulary (blindfolded hide and seek & guiding robots around mazes) Instructional writing (CT skill of decomposition along with thinking algorithmically) Algorithms written as short narratives

Literacy - Animations in Scratch (sequencing) - Interaction between characters (selection) - If sprite one touches sprite two then …

- Quest story game with levels - (variables for reward, lives) - Literacy > computing - Computing > literacy

Literacy - IT and DL



Multimodal ebooks

Numeracy • Pupils write algorithms to trace shapes (investigate patterns) • KS2 pupils create learning games for younger pupils • Pupils program their own calculators or teaching tools (developing understanding of number and calculation processes) • Pupils write out algorithms for written methods of calculation – turn their partner into a calculator! • Investigate the numeracy behind the ‘playability’ of games


Numeracy learning games Can pupils alter this game to change the numeracy objective?


Can you create a simple calculator? (Youtube: Calculator in Scratch)

How is ratio important in this game?

Task 1 - Discuss on your table ideas for embedding computing within literacy and numeracy with your pupils at your school - Feedback to group

Topic examples • The poem of Tam o' Shanter - Robert Burns Writing Art



Drama / Role Play

Topic examples • The poem of Tam o' Shanter - Robert Burns Programming

Topic examples Egyptians: How to make a mummy?


Topic examples Vikings: Viking raider

Don’t forget… Control – Create (or simulate) physical systems (Design technology) Simon Walters

Data logging – Collect data (Science)

Task 2 Split yourselves into KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2 Identify your main topic areas. For each topic, identify: • •

What ICT is currently included? What new Computing objectives are already covered? Identify possible projects to link with Computer Science learning objectives

Next steps… • Reflect on this activity • Discuss and share your ideas with staff in your school MLT / SLT and pupils (computing champions) • Identify what aspect you need further support with: CAS (forums/network events),,, Twitter
