Includes six topics per year for Years 1 to 6. For each topic, there are three tasks (one diagnostic task, one written task, one practical task). Topics covered include: problem solving, programming, logical thinking, searching, creating content, digital literacy, online safety and using IT beyond school. Download a content list.
All of the tasks are linked to the Progression Framework for Computing. This framework breaks down the curriculum into individual statements with "what to look for" guidance to help teachers make reliable judgements about children's learning.

Much of our focus throughout the development of these tasks was to ensure the content was accessible, engaging and contextually sound, and allowed all pupils to achieve, regardless of their abilities
We have found that these tasks help teachers to gauge where children are in their learning. For us, they will be an invaluable addition to our computing toolkit and will help to develop and extend our computing teaching.
We liked that the resources gave teachers an effective account of learning and attainment, which is very beneficial for those not as confident teaching ICT.
