Week 1 (Week beginning 23rd March)

Although many of you have already done this, you first need to sign up to https://idea.org.uk/.

***You MUST follow the guidance on the sign up info page!***

Guidance on how this should be done (including information on how to link your account to your class using an organiser code) is explained here: SIGN UP INFO

***You MUST follow the guidance on the sign up info page!***

Once you have signed up and entered your class organiser code, you need to start working through the badges.

Regardless of whether you started last week or not, you need to spend a minimum of 1 hour working through badges of your choice.

I will be able to monitor what badges people achieve and will begin to celebrate their successes on the Award Celebration page.

After Easter, your weekly lessons will generally follow the normal CS curriculum that we deliver each year, but we will also continue to dedicate some lesson time to the iDEA award too!
