Hi Josie,

This sounds like a great project. I start a PGCE to teach the new
Computing curriculum in secondary schools in 3 weeks so this will be
very welcome.

I got a bursary to do it from the BCS to do it and they are in
partnership with CAS (Computing at School). I would be very interested
to hear your take on their work and resource site which I imagine you've
looked into.
It's here - http://community.computingatschool.org.uk/resources

The notable thing is you have to register and log in to get access.
