FUNecole® is your end-to-end toolkit to tackle the new and demanding UK primary computing programme of study. With 100% syllabus coverage in both KS1 and KS2 its topics include coding, computer science, networks, searching and the internet, e-safety, digital literacy and ICT. And on top, its unique 21st century skills lesson integration develops solid critical-thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, independent thinking and social skills to your primary pupils.
When was the last time you pulled an “all-nighter” to plan your upcoming computing lessons? How much valuable time do you spend on combining open resources, learning new topics and creating your own materials? And by then, how do you ensure consistency and the element of progression through the year and over the whole primary years? How easily do you engage your pupils while using scattered themes and activities? How do you tackle meaningful formative assessment? Read on.
Planning and Resourcing
FUNecole® offers fully designed lessons for up to 70 teaching hours per primary year enabling you to deliver even beyond the national curriculum (e.g. web design). The lessons are comprehensively supported with digital teaching resources including detailed plans, activity guides, games, illustrated teaching content, student assignments and formative assessments.
Teaching and Learning
FUNecole® lessons are designed on 21st century interdisciplinary themes such as global awareness and environmental literacy enabling you to follow either a standalone or integrated approach to teaching the curriculum. The lesson activities revolve around real-world scenarios and are specifically designed to incorporate project-based learning and “learner-centred” approaches.
Assessment and Reporting
A series of formative student assessments are provided with each lesson, enabling you to get instant feedback on your students’ progress. The questions are specifically designed to assess both computing and 21st century skills understanding. Descriptive learning analytics are available upon activity and lesson completion allowing you to derive and report meaningful class insights.
