Super Space


Ever since we launched our first set of Early Years resources a couple of years ago, they continue to be hugely popular with teachers across the UK. These resources aim to develop younger pupils’ computational thinking and problem solving skills in contexts familiar to an Early Years setting. 


This latest set uses the theme of space to present 3 activities designed to get pupils problem solving using computational thinking and collaboration. Pupils create an algorithm to guide a rocket through space, spot patterns in aliens and tinker with ways to build a rocket! 


Click the link in the tile below to download the 3 activities for free, and please connect with us on our social channels when you use them with your pupils. We love seeing our Barefoot resources in action!
