Early Years Computing
The computing curriculum and our scheme of work do not officially cover Early Years, however, technology, and young children's understanding of technology will play a vital role in their early development and their success with computing in the future. The following articles and resources offer really useful guidance on what computing should look like in Early Years, in order to provide a strong foundation for those children when they begin Key Stage one.
The Computational Thinkers - Early years
An adapted version of the CAS Barefoot 'The Computational Thinkers' poster, for EarlyYears. So much of computational thinking is right at home in Early Years! Produced by The CAS Barefoot Computing project. You can find all their fantastic resources here: www.barefootcomputing.org
Computational Thinking in Early Years, an overview
An excellent guide to accompany 'The Computational Thinkers' poster from CAS Barefoot. The document explains what computational thinking is, how it fits into early years, suggests example activities and maps everything to existing Early Years areas of learning.
