We have been trialling Switched on Computing Unit 3.1 - We are programmers in all of our junior classes. We did it like this so that all of the junior children get an experience of programming and the class teachers can exchange ideas and outcomes.
The animations are linked to their topic work so in year 3 it is 'Water' (fish photos), Year 4 it is Oliver Twist and Year 5 have been reading the book 'Skellig' so their animations are linked to this.
The children are loving it and really enjoy the challenge. The plans in Switched on Computing have given us a clear plan of how to deliver the difficult area of programming.
