Primary Computing. Made Easy.

Trusted resources used by teachers and pupils in over 800 schools.

Description

This activity pack demonstrates how WordPress (a free, online website and blog editor) can be used by pupils to create and publish their own websites about a variety of topics. It introduces and develops many digital skills (see below). The pack includes:

  • A pupil activity pack accessible at school or home using our pupil activity code tool with 9 video tutorials and activities (see introduction video tutorial below).
  • Teacher notes with a video tutorial demonstrating how to set up and moderate the pupil websites, assessment grid and knowledge organiser.
