Somerset eLIM Progressions

 The Somerset eLIM Progressions documents can be used if you choose to develop your own medium and short term planning.  The blank template can be used to plan for Computing over the year - fill in activities and make links to learning in other subjects.  We would expect this to be used as a flexible model to fit within your overall school curriculum.
