The Programming Journey

Reinforce the curriculum’s objectives and help your children to appreciate the presence of technology that surrounds them in everyday life.

Posted on Friday 12th December 2014


Using ‘The Programming Journey’ and other expert guides written by Andrew Bush, our in-house expert and ex-ICT advisor, we’ll show you how to embed computing into your school.

The journey spans from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2, and covers a range of topics:

Key Stage 1:

  • Action, reaction and the use of directional language

Bee-Bot Floor Robot®  Easi-Cars - Set of 4 Rechargeable Cars  Rugged Racer Remote control cars

Key Stage 2:

  • Building, testing and debugging algorithms created for Bee-Bot®
  • Programming how far and the angles in which the Pro-Bot™ manoeuvres

Animate IT software   Pro-Bot™  Easi-Speak Pro digital camera

Subjects to be covered include:

  • Computer Science
  • Digital Literacy

We hope you find this blog useful and enjoy teaching computing as much as the children in your school enjoy learning it. Look out for the next blog in our Programming Journey series – ‘Key Stage 1 Computer Science’, where we will cover:

  • Algorithms
  • Creating and debugging simple programs
  • Logical reasoning

What are your experiences of the new Computing curriculum? Do have you any questions you need answering about the new Computing curriculum? We’d love to hear from you so please leave a comment below and we will be more than happy to help in any way we can.
