Outline of the session:

computing square 80Building on the success of our Introduction to Scratch, we are proud to introduce our half day Programming Scratch 2.0 for Upper KS2.  This course is designed for Key Stage 2 teachers who are looking to engage their student’s basic programming skills by creating simple computer games.  This course will enable students to produce more complex outcomes at the level required at the end of Key Stage 2.

This half day course will start by briefly revisiting the basic functions of Scratch.  You will then look at the progression needed and examples of how Scratch could be used to teach programming at Key Stage 2.   The course is delivered to small groups allowing for plenty of support from the course leader.

Course Aims:


The course aim is to build upon existing Scratch knowledge giving further examples of programming language and how it can be used to support the Computing Curriculum.


Course Objectives:

At the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Explore how Scratch can be used to deliver the Computing Curriculum
  • Develop a working understanding of progression with Scratch
  • Complete practical activities, exploring programming using Scratch at Key Stage 2
  • Develop more advanced Scratch coding skills that allow upper Key Stage 2 pupils to produce complex outcomes
  • Use the online tool for sharing pupils’ work


This course is for teachers that have used scratch with pupils who want to extend their knowledge further.  Delegates are expected to have a good basic understanding of Scratch 2.0.  For those who are completely new to Scratch, please consider our beginners guide - Introduction to Scratch programming.
