During our school closure home learning resources will be added to this page for children to help support with distance learning.

Home Learning Examples

EYFS - Curriculum 

Technology

  • Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. 
  • They select and use technology for particular purposes.

KS1 - Curriculum 

Computer Science

  • Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.
  • Create and debug simple programs.
  • Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs. 

Information Technology

  • Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

Digital Literacy

  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.
  • Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

EYFS - Useful WebsitesRoyalty Free Sound Effects (FX) Library for Download

This allows you to explore pre-recorded sounds with the children, that they can guess. 

LGfL - Lancashire Grid for LearningThis is an example of a bird box camera, looking at bird eggs hatching. These digital/ video cameras are good for getting the children to take and make pictures of what they see.

Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute

These are live animal webcams of different animals such as a lion, giant panda and an elephant.

 

KS1 - Useful Websites

Some free resources relating to the three strands of the National Curriculum for Computing. 

This KS1 infant toolkit includes: word processing, animation, graphing and painting. These are aspects relating to Digital Literacy and Computer Science.

This KS1 resource includes a range of videos and activities relating to the three strands of the National Curriculum.

 

This KS1 resource has a range of interactive games that relate to all three strands of the National Curriculum.

  

This is a coding resource related to Computer Science, where children are able to create and debug simple programs. 

This is another coding resource related to Computer Science, where children learn how to understand what algorithms are.

KS2 - Curriculum 

Computer Science

  • Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts. 
  • Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output. 
  • Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs. 
  • Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web.
  • Appreciate how [search] results are selected and ranked. 

Information Technology

  • Use search technologies effectively.
  • Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information. 

Digital Literacy

  • Understand the opportunities [networks] offer for communication and collaboration.
  • Be discerning in evaluating digital content. 
  • Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
