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.

 Our featured theme for February 2019 is 'The Great Fire of London'!

London’s burning, London’s burning… On the 2nd of September 1666, after a long hot and very dry summer, the city of London suddenly caught alight, resulting in a blaze that raged like London had never seen before, or since. This was The Great Fire of London!

In this theme, we explore:

  • How did the fire start?
  • How long did it burn?
  • How much of the city was destroyed?
  • How was it stopped?
  • How did the fire change London?
  • How were people affected by the fire?
  • How do we know what happened?

We have 35 excellent themed resources that will provide answers to the above questions and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, art, displays, songs, games, audio clips and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully underpin this fascinating and enlightening topic.

The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our superb 'Healthy Humans' resources coming in March 2019!
