Event Details

Children’s Create Along – Unplugged Explorations: Introducing early level computational thinking with Barefoot Computing
Isabella Lieghio, Education Consultant, Icon Learning/Barefoot Volunteer


Join this 45 minute create along, online session with Isabella Lieghio as she introduces us to the wonderful FREE Computing Science learning materials from Barefoot Computing and takes us through one of the early years activities, step by step. This session is suitable for early and first level learners.

The activity will be about recognising, continuing and creating patterns from the ‘Winter Warmers’ activity.

Where do you see patterns in you home, garden, playroom, classroom?

You can choose to use the optional scarf printable pattern templates or alternatively you can use any resources to create patterns during the create along (loose parts or natural materials such as leaves, conkers, pine cones, twigs, or various colours of playdough, small construction, sorting and counting resources).

You may even  choose to wear a patterned item of clothing that day!


Please register for a free account with Early Years | EN | Barefoot Computing and watch the ‘Getting Started’ video for practitioners before the session.

Please download and print if you wish to create your patterns this way.

NOTE: This session is hosted via Microsoft Teams (a Glow log in is not required).
