LITERACY FROM SCRATCH

http://www.literacyfromscratch.org.uk/

Literacy from Scratch is a response to the UK government’s initiative to develop computer programming skills in Primary School. It is a  joint project between schools in London and in Prague. The project was developed by a group of postgraduate students from those cities – aided further by schools in the UK and the Czech Republic, as the students rose to this challenge. The site offers masses of resources: teaching videos, good ideas, cross curricular activities, completed examples and all sorts of projects to investigate further – maybe some examples that you can actually use in your lessons. This site also reports back on projects already created by the post graduate students and are ready for use in class.

The resources are shared and able to be downloaded. There is also a commentary available about: what worked, what were the problems, how could they be overcome and how the resource could be used in the classroom? For anyone still wondering about computing and coding in the classroom, it is worth investigating. There are some lovely projects being uploaded which can be shared in the classroom.

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 2500 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for January 2020 is Weather and Climate Change!

 

Weather and Climate Change. As we live on an island in Britain, we experience a wide range of weather and the weather that we are subjected to affects us all in many ways. The extreme weather we sometimes experience is often blamed, in the media, on global warming and climate change.  The threat to our planet, posed by climate change is very real and topical, with the melting of the ice caps, the recent global strikes by school students and the actions of Greta Thunberg regularly being reported in the press. It is certainly something that we need to be concerned about and is very worthy of further investigation.

 We have over 70 superb resources that help support this life threatening topic – together, they explore the following:

  • Weather and Climate
  • Water Cycle
  • Extreme Weather
  • Global Warming
  • Climate Change
  • How Humans can damage our environment and how we can all help.

The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, games and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully help to reinforce this extremely important topic

 

 

The featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our great 'Music' resources coming in February 2020!
