LITERACY FROM SCRATCH

http://www.literacyfromscratch.org.uk/

Literacy from Scratch is a response to the UK government’s initiative to develop computer programming skills in Primary School. It is a  joint project between schools in London and in Prague. The project was developed by a group of postgraduate students from those cities – aided further by schools in the UK and the Czech Republic, as the students rose to this challenge. The site offers masses of resources: teaching videos, good ideas, cross curricular activities, completed examples and all sorts of projects to investigate further – maybe some examples that you can actually use in your lessons. This site also reports back on projects already created by the post graduate students and are ready for use in class.

The resources are shared and able to be downloaded. There is also a commentary available about: what worked, what were the problems, how could they be overcome and how the resource could be used in the classroom? For anyone still wondering about computing and coding in the classroom, it is worth investigating. There are some lovely projects being uploaded which can be shared in the classroom.

March 2019

Our terrific featured theme for March was ‘Health and Healthy Living’. I think that we would all agree that staying healthy will help us to feel better about ourselves and assist us in being more physically active and stronger.

In order for us to stay healthy, in addition to following any medical advice or care given to us, we need to:

  • eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water;
  • do lots of exercise and get enough sleep;
  • keep ourselves clean and pay attention to our personal hygiene.

We have over 50 superb resources that help support this really important topic - they comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, games and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully help to reinforce this life-supporting topic.
