QUICKSTART: COMPUTING FOR PRIMARY SCHOOLS

http://primary.quickstartcomputing.org/index.html

This website is a resource to help teachers deliver the new computing curriculum with confidence, it has been created in easy to access and follow sections, each section dealing with one aspect:

  • Introduction
  • Computational thinking
  • Programming
  • Technology
  • Computer Networks
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Productivity and Creativity
  • Safe and Responsible use
  • Planning
  • Teaching
  • Assessment
  • Running CPD sessions

Each section includes material that explores the subject matter, offers teaching guidance and planning advice together with practical activities to use in the classroom. Accompanying videos present concepts and ideas in an easy to understand way. The idea is that one person, the ICT Coordinator or a computing champion, will train then try out the resources etc in his or her classroom before providing CPD for the rest of the staff, thus sharing tried and tested materials.Use these materials to acquire the necessary skills to make the transition from teaching ICT to teaching Computer Science and learn how to assess pupil progress using the new Progression Frameworks.This is a really useful set of free resources for all primary schools.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our super new featured theme for May 2020 is 'Railways'!

 

In May, we explore the fascinating world of Railways. We have 40 excellent themed websites on offer, covering: the first engine to travel on a track in 1804, railway development and expansion over the years, including the Industrial Revolution, the Victorian era and the glorious age of steam, taking us right up to the high speed trains that currently thunder along our rail tracks.  We also explore how railways have changed the world of travel and transportation.

As with all of our super featured themes, Railways contains a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. The theme comprises of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 school closures, we decided to also keep our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme from April on the homepage during the month of May. The popular theme has grown to 62 great resources and we hope that it will continue to prove useful to teachers, parents and children during these challenging times.

The theme contains the following resources:

  • Free Learning Resource Packs
  • PE and Mindfulness Resources
  • Art and Craft Activities
  • Cooking Activities and Recopies
  • Home Learning Advice and Tipsto
  • Free Stories and Applications
  • Non-Curricular Entertainment
  • Free Language Learning Resources
  • And Much More…

We plan to add to these resources during the crisis and if any teachers or parents out there can recommend any quality sites that we can add to the theme and share with others, please let us know at: hub@123ict.co.uk

 

The featured theme is normally updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our super 'Heroes and Villains' resources coming in June 2020!

Our super featured theme for March 2020 was Languages. Learning a second language is not only a requirement for KS2 children - it is an important skill that most children will enjoy learning and will undoubtedly prove useful to them in later life. Our fantastic resources cover the following primary school languages:

  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Mandarin
  • Spanish

We have 75 great themed resources that will hopefully help teachers and students in their understanding of languages. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, examples, communication, research, hands-on activities, games, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully support this informative and enjoyable topic.
