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 approaching 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for April 2020 is 'Learning and Living at Home'!

 

Due to the Coronavirus school closures, we decided to postpone our ‘Railways’ theme that was planned for April and replace it with our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme. We have initially added 45 great resources to the theme that we hope that will 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 Tips
  • 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 'Railways' resources coming in May 2020!

March 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.
