Coding resources for Primary

There has been a real upsurge in development in supporting Primary teachers with Computing Science and Monday September 5th saw the launch of Barefoot Computing resources for Scotland, resources for Early, First and Second level Computing Science.

These resources make it easy to introduce the ideas and practical skills behind coding and computational thinking skills across primary. Pupils at Auchterarder primary had a great time programming their Blu Bots to find their way through a maze of stars. The Blu Bots can be programmed with their buttons or through an app on your iPad.

Coding and computational thinking skills can be taught without such pieces of kit however. Online and unplugged materials engage your learners in lots of different way.
