ToodleBit is a creative, hands-on approach to teaching KS2 computing and is especially designed for the non-specialist teacher to use with easy to follow lesson plans plus equipment. ToodleBit’s online classroom provides animated videos that guide both the teacher and pupils through each lesson, demonstrating how to code the Micro:Bit and explaining key concepts. Included are support and extension activities that enable pupils to work at their own pace and develop independence from the teacher.

Schools in Devon and Cornwall are using the ToodleBit package to design, make and code their own games and tools which include an anemometer, mini smart home (that automatically turns lights on or off according to light levels and a fan when the temperature rises), traffic light systems and are even learning how to send Morse code messages across the classroom! Pupils work together, learning how to share ideas, identify and solve problems. Projects are cross curricula involving science, maths, design technology and computing.
