How does iLearn2 work?

iLearn2 provides over 100 primary computing activity packs to cover the Key Stage 1 and 2 Computing Curriculum plus much more. Unlike traditional schemes of work, pupils can use iLearn2 at school or home to work through the activities independently, which have been assigned by their teacherThe packs include activities for a variety of free software across multiple platforms (Windows, Chromebook and iPad), providing pupils with a wide range of skills. We update the website EVERY week, helping learn and teach the latest digital skills.

👨‍🏫 Teaching Resources

Each activity pack has lesson outlines and step-by-step video tutorials helping with teacher subject knowledge and confidence. Plus downloadable resources, including knowledge organisers, posters and more.

The packs are divided into year group and a Progression of Skills page helps map out the teaching progression of computing from years 1-6, providing full curriculum coverage. 

The e-safety skills and many other activities are also mapped to the Education for a Connected World (2020) framework, using an interactive page.

Our Embed page has over 100 ideas and pupil work examples of how to use the activity packs across the primary curriculum. Our Intent, Implementation and Impact page can also be found here.

👩‍🎓 Pupil Activity Packs

The pupil activity packs help pupils work independently through the activities, tutorials and challenges at school or home, learning hundreds of digital skills. All tried and tested in school.

The pupil packs also help teachers, regardless of computing teaching experience, to build confidence of the less able pupils and stretch the higher ability, by assigning suitable activities.

Pupils access each activity pack with a simple code, which can be typed into this page or the Login page. The codes for the pupil activity packs can be found in each pack, when signed in as a teacher – no pupil logins to make!

The video tutorials also support Google Chrome’s Live Caption Tool for pupils with hearing loss or when there are no headphones.

✅ Assessment

The teacher notes for each pack provide information, guidance and often tutorials on how pupils can save/capture their work within the software being covered. 

Most packs include a downloadable assessment grid with the skills and space for pupil names across the top. The cells change colour as teachers type 1, 2 or 3 (Achieved, Achieved with support or Not achieved), which can also be edited to match your assessment policy. Some packs demonstrate free websites to automatically assess the skills covered in the pack.

The packs also include printable challenge sheets/cards, which can be used to capture individual pupil understanding or as a group assessment activity.

💬 Testimonials

“I have been teaching computing for 20 years and your scheme of work is absolutely the best one.”
Liz Robinson, Loreto Prep School

“I fed back to our Governors about our Computing Curriculum and the changes that we have made – they were blown away by the quality of the resources you provide!”
Katie Stewart, St Mary’s Primary School

“Knew you had to be teachers as only someone with ‘real experience’ could make it so effective!”
Sarah Herriot, Victoria College Prep School

“Worth its weight in gold and has given my colleagues the confidence to give it a go. Even for experienced computing teachers, having those videos available allows students to work at their own pace and those who need support can get it, while the enthusiasts in the class are always challenged.”
