What is included?

ToodleBit is a creative, hands-on approach to teaching STEM within KS2. Based around the computer science curriculum, ToodleBit uses the BBC MicroBit to link computing, science, maths and design technology into exciting and stimulating lessons. Designed for the non-specialist teacher, animated videos guide pupils through each lesson.

ToodleBit comprises of 7 units of work, each unit is made up of 6 lessons providing a scheme of work from year 3 to year 6. Each package includes detailed lesson plans, components to complete each project and an online classroom with the animated videos, support and extension ideas enabling all pupils to succeed.

The Online Classroom Is The Hub of THE ToodleBit Operation

Animated videos guide both staff and pupils through each lesson. They provide the specialised knowledge and language which many teachers find challenging.

Challenges are set which require pupils to develop a range of skills and knowledge; designing, making as well as coding. Support and extension activities enable pupils to work at their own pace and develop independence from the teacher.

Confidence grows as all pupils succeed in making their project work.

Scheme of Work

Examples from the National Curriculum

Computing
Equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

Design Technology
Understand and use electrical systems in their products [for example, series circuits incorporating switches, bulbs, buzzers and motors], apply their understanding of computing to program, monitor and control their products..

Science
Pupils might work scientifically by: systematically identifying the effect of changing one component at a time in a circuit; designing and making a set of traffic lights, a burglar alarm or some other useful circuit.

Training

ToodleBit includes staff meeting notes, videos and activities to ensure all staff can confidently deliver the curriculum.

In school training is also available which is arranged in consultation with the school but could be via staff meeting / demonstration lessons.
