This is a golden opportunity for primary school teachers in Cambridge to better develop their understanding of the ways in which the BBC Micro:bit can serve.
Graham Hastings (from St Johns College School) is creating a fully resourced, CC licensed scheme of work for primary schools to enable them to make use of the micro:bit as a resource for creative work across the curriculum. Thanks to support from Histon and Impington Junior school, he has piloted the scheme of work and has been able to continue to refine the resources based on the feedback received so far. The more schools that sign up to the project, the more feedback he gains and can use to make further improvements.
Thanks to funding from the ARM Schools Programme, Graham can supply schools that sign up to the project with micro:bits and components free of charge. The aim being that the schools will then write the activities into their curriculum and hopefully build on them over the years.
