I am in awe of primary teachers who are managing to teach students in school and send out home learning videos and resources at the same time. Thank you and well done!
6 years ago I worked with some amazing primary teachers across York to come up with some resources for the introduction of Computing to the National Curriculum for England including some keyword posters to help with the weird and wonderful words used in the computing programme of study.
To help with remote learning, I’ve put together a load of free online activities that students can do on (almost) any device without needing to sign up or login. They’re all based around keywords and definitions linked to each part of the KS1 and KS2 Computing programme of study.
There are loads of other computing resources out there but I hope that these save someone some time and stress.
All of the activities are designed to work without needing to log in or sign up, but if you make a (free) teacher account then you can create competitions so you can track the score, accuracy and progress for each game. Go to https://tools.withcode.uk/keywords/user/ to create an account or manage your competitions.
Students don’t need to make accounts to take part in your competitions – they’ll be asked to enter their names and a code (which you decide when you make the competition). If you share this code with your students you can keep it private so that only your students can join in.
Students can’t see each other’s names – you’re the only one that can do that. Personal data is encrypted and stored in the UK to be GDPR compliant. You can find out more here or contact me if you have any questions.
