If you’re a primary school teacher who’d like to get up to speed on teaching the computing outcomes within the Technologies strand, why not have a read of this guidebook for teachers?

Written by Kate Farrell (a computing teacher) and three computer science academics, the guide explains the three strands of the curriculum with lots of example activities for each level and outcome.

A primary teacher who uses the guide in her practice said: ‘I use it to select my activities when I’m teaching computing science. That is what I go to; it is my go-to thing, when I think “what should I be teaching”.
