Computing Scheme of Work

Oct. 28, 2021

The Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work gives you everything you need to teach computing to primary school children, all in one place. When we first made the scheme available as a free download we were overwhelmed by its popularity among teachers and computing leaders.

Now we’ve updated the scheme for subscribers, we don’t want everyone else to miss out. That’s why we’re making the new version available as a free download, just like we did before.

Slideshows sample pack

Designed to enable you to teach in the most practical way possible without having to refer to any other documents or find links and resources during lessons, these slideshows free you to focus on what children are doing and how they are learning. The free scheme of work includes a slideshow for each lesson of three specially selected units. Purple Mash subscribers can access a slideshow for every single lesson throughout the entire scheme.

Knowledge Organisers sample pack

Every single lesson of the Purple Mash Scheme of Work for Computing includes its own knowledge organiser, summarising key learning, resources, vocabulary, images and questions from that lesson. This sample pack gives you one knowledge organiser from every single year group, absolutely free! Purple Mash subscribers can access a knowledge organiser for every unit of the scheme within the unit’s own Purple Mash page
