Primary Computing Scheme
The Primary Computing Scheme provides a creative approach to delivering the 2014 computing curriculum.
The Primary Computing Scheme supports the teaching and the development of computing, building computer science capability and digital literacy for current and future learning.
The scheme is organised into four phases, Early Years, KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2, with termly learning themes from Years 1 to 6.
Including access to an extensive online bank of accompanying materials, the Primary Computing Scheme from Herts for Learning is kept up to date to reflect the use of the latest technologies and practices.
