 Sheffield Primary Computing Scheme of Work 2017

All of our curriculum packages include access to the new Sheffield Primary Computing Scheme of Work 2017. The successful Sheffield Primary Computing Scheme of Work for 2015 has been fully revised and improved according to feedback from teachers and national developments in thinking on computing. The new scheme enables children to create, refine and critically evaluate digital content as safe, active and creative participants in our digital world. The revised scheme contains:

  • Greater detail in activities to support non-specialists
  • A new Key Skills strand to ensure pupils are equipped to access the full curriculum using school technology
  • A growing bank of resources to support units, including sample code, lesson plans and web-based resources
  • Explicit links to Online Safety in relevant units (starred units are linked with the Sheffield Safeguarding Children’s Board Scheme of Work)
  • Alternative delivery suggestions, for schools using tablets, with a physical computing appendix using Code Bugs
  • Progression statements for each unit for pupils who are entering, developing and  secure, that can be used for assessment
  • A Foundation Stage 2 Computing Framework, giving ideas for using technology across FS2

The scheme can be bought as a standalone product, please contact Sue Finnigan for enquiries, sue.finnigan@sheffield.gov.uk / (0114) 2587728. For more information and to view sample units, click here.

“I was really impressed with the new Scheme of Work – it seems so accessible for teachers to use regardless of their personal confidence or skill level.  The list of tasks and suggested learning approaches means all children will be given a chance to succeed in Computing no matter what IT systems a school uses.  Great work!”
