Many of you will be thinking about planning for ICT in school over the next few months. At the centre of good planning - whether it be a couple of lessons or activities or a sequence over half a term - is an understanding of progression: how children can 'get better' at doing ICT; what their next steps should be. There are several sources of support for progression in primary ICT (including an excellent book by Bennett, Hamill and Pickford), but the best online materials are those produced by the E-Learning Team in Somerset. Their Primary Progressions Documents cover all the strands of ICT and E-Safety.
