This scheme shows how the ICT programme of study for key stages 1 and 2 can be translated into manageable units of work.
The scheme is not statutory; you can use as much or as little as you wish. You could use the whole scheme or individual units. The sections on using this scheme and sequencing the units can help you to decide how you want to use the scheme.
The units are aimed at pupils who are attaining at levels that are broadly appropriate for their age. You may therefore need to adapt them to meet your pupils needs. The Adapting units section provides guidance on doing this.
You may also wish to combine these units with units from another subject. The Combining units section gives information on exploiting powerful links between subjects.
An updated ICT Teacher's guide for key stages 1 and 2 has been sent to all primary schools in England. It includes a range of new integrated tasks for existing units, showing how key ideas, skills and techniques in ICT can be applied and developed in other subjects.
