bbc-microbitThe BBC micro:bit, given out to all year 7 pupils in 2016 and funded by BBC and partners, is a cool piece of technology. KS2 is the ideal time to start to use and code with them as it fulfils the primary computing curriculum well into KS3.  Each delegate will receive a BBC micro:bit (theirs to take away!) and through the day will be shown how to use it to teach the computing curriculum.  It is ideal for cross curricular projects.
Who should attend?
Computing subject leaders in primary phase schools and academies, including Special schools with primary phase children. The course is aimed at pupils in key stage 2.
