30 blocks, designed for 30 students. micro:bit Lessons Plans + wireless SAM Blocks.
Use the SAM blocks, Micro:bit and the SAM Blockly app to build classroom projects and complete lesson plans to teach KS2-KS3 computing (aligned to the British National Curriculum in Computing and CAS Computing Progression Pathway).
Our Learn to Code Course is a suite of standards-aligned Lesson Packs, Starter Lessons, Standards Alignment maps and Grade overviews to support your planning.
Each lesson follows Sam on a mission through Cyberspace, providing students with the opportunity to learn Computer Science concepts, code a program, reflect on and debug it.
Covering Grades 4–8, our Learn to Code Course is designed to cater for teachers of all levels of coding experience, increase student engagement, decrease teacher workload and build confidence.
From using selection to code a program that detects danger, to using compound conditionals to play a game of 'Rock, Paper, Scissors', our lessons guide students through increasing programming complexity.
