Free “Programming with Scratch” booklet

I am pleased to be able to make available my Programming with Scratch – A step-by-step guide, linked to the English National Curriculum, for primary school teachers booklet freely available for download.

This booklet allows teachers to undertake four activities, which cover (and exceed in places) the KS1 and KS2 programming elements of the 2014 Computing curriculum. In addition to step-by-step instructions, each activity contains an explanation for the relevant blocks of code. The booklet also includes a fifth activity, which covers some areas of the KS3 curriculum.

The booklet has been used to train hundreds of both trainee and qualified teachers. It should ideally be used in conjunction with high-quality CPD, such as our Delivering the new Computing Computing Curriculum training.

The latest version of the booklet can always be found here – https://computingchampions.co.uk/scratch/
