Progressing with Programming in Primary

Kelly Smith, Our Lady of Lourdes RCVA Primary


The aim of this session is to help build confidence in programming. We will begin with a simple idea and develop it to create a computer game. We will use hands-on practical examples and relate the activity to the computational thinking at the core of computer science. There will be opportunities to identify progression and link to other areas of the curriculum. The session will also help you to develop an understanding of the vocabulary related to computer programming.
