We have developed a Computing Toolkit for use in Foundation Stage 2, to complement our Primary Computing scheme of work. It has been developed with early years teachers in the city to provide guidance on ways of incorporating technology into everyday classroom activities, and reflects the content of the Computing curriculum. These activities support communication, numeracy and literacy, together with developing problem-solving skills.
Each unit contains a number of suggested activities, links to resources, suggestions of software and apps, plus progression statements to indicate progress that can be made above and beyond the Early Year Goals.
The Foundation Stage Computing Toolkit is free to schools who have a package with the eLearning Service, a core subscription to Learn Sheffield, or have bought the Primary Computing Scheme of Work. Please contact Catherine Elliott for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
