Teaching website design and programming in primary ICT Examples of how primary teachers are teaching website design and computer programming and control through robotics.
At Two Mile Hill Junior School in Bristol, ICT coordinator Laura Hooper is helping her colleague Sarah Webber teach website design to her Year 6 pupils. Sarah is using the current history module on the Victorians as the subject for her pupils’ websites. The pupils make audio recordings of what they find out in history, which are then uploaded to their website.
At Hillfields Primary Beccy Sherratt updates her teaching of programming and control using some robotic cars borrowed from her local city learning centre. Her pupils can programme these to follow various obstacle courses, or attach a pen to create patterns through programming.
