Previous CPD

Reinventing the Beebot

Our first session is for EYFS and Key Stage 1 teachers based on ‘Reinventing the Beebot’. Beebots are often a resource found in schools, maybe even in cupboards, which are rarely used. This short after-school training will show teachers how these resources can be integrated into classroom practice to meet many of the computing curriculum objectives over Key Stage 1.

The training will cost £20 per delegate, included in the price will be online resources to access after the session, containing lesson plans, lesson examples, worksheets, etc. We are hosting this training at several different locations and thought this might of interest to your teachers:
