Blooms Action Verbs Bloom’s Taxonomy is a classification of the different objectives and skills that educators set for their students (learning objectives). The taxonomy was proposed in 1956 by Benjamin Bloom, an educational psychologist at the University of Chicago.  Each of our computer science lessons is built around using Bloom's Action Verbs to provide appropriate support and scaffolding for the least able along with stretch and challenge for the most able.  You can read more about how we use Bloom's Action Verbs here

Black History Month

Every October the UK holds Black History Month to celebrate the achievements and positive contributions of countless black people over the centuries. Computer science is often portrayed as a white, male middle-class subject, but there are a number of pioneering back computer scientists.  These are based on the profiles from cs4fn.
