1.2 Computing programmes of study for children

Read the Computing programmes of study for primary school children [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] from the National Curriculum in England.

After you read, ask yourself:

  • Am I surprised by what is on the computing curriculum for children?
  • Are there areas that I already know about? Would I feel confident explaining these areas to other adults or to children?
  • Are there aspects that I am not familiar with?

For the rest of this session, you will learn more about computing as a subject and some effective ways for children to learn about it.
