This scheme shows how the ICT programme of study for key stages 1 and 2 can be translated into manageable units of work. The scheme is not statutory; you can use as much or as little as you wish. You could use the whole scheme or individual units.

Overview of ICT progression Clicking on a segment will take you to that theme. It is important that all teachers are aware of the overall progression so that judgements can be made on which units should be taught in which year groups based on pupils' prior experience / ICT capability. For example, pupils may design and create their own multimedia presentation showing awareness of audience in Year 4, rather than in Year 6 (see QCA Unit 6A). <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
This web site provides ideas and activities in how the use of ICT progresses through the Foundation Stages, supporting the whole curriculum. Resources - the ICT resources are given in bold in each activity. If you wish for more information about these resources, many of them can be found on our reviews pages . Clicking on them will give you a direct link to the review page. These are underlined and are in blue.
As it's my birthday today I thought I would treat everybody by sharing my ICT progression grids with you. I have spent a good few years now creating these so that they best describe the curriculum I consider children at my school should learn to equip them with the necessary digital skills they need in the 21st century for both future learning and life. They also take into account issues like: timetabling, the hardware we have available and how much can realistically be covered in a year alongside various special events/celebration which happen. I've researched several other schemes of work produced by Local Authorities and ICT leaders and have tried to 'cherry-pick' the best bits as well as add some of my own ideas too. Notice how each aspect of the curriculum is split into 'key ideas' and 'techniques' - this clarifies my belief that ICT isn't just about teaching skills - it's about teaching the concepts and theory behind implementing them too.
February 2012 Primary ICT Teaching and Learning Framework The Primary ICT Teaching and Learning Framework is a scheme of work for the delivery of a consistent, creative and innovative ICT curriculum. The contributors and I wrote this Framework in 2011 as we wanted our students to have access to a modern curriculum which gave them useful and relevant ICT skills and started them on the journey of becoming digitally literate citizens.
