Computing

Why is Computing important?

Through Computing, we not only learn to use technology purposefully and effectively, but become aware of the underlying processes involved, helping us to understand how best to apply skills safely and ethically. Learning about control systems and robots increases awareness of many of the operating systems we use to manage our everyday lives.

The internet helps us to rapidly access ideas and experiences from a wide range of individuals, communities, countries and cultures. In Computing, we develop essential skills for life in a digital age, learning to apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

 

When is Computing taught?

This year we have joined forces with Mr Hodgson from Junior Jam to enhance our existing Computing curriculum. The use of iPads in the classroom has revolutionised the way children are taught. iPads engage, motivate and inspire pupils’ learning, and at Junior Jam they have developed, and continue to develop a range of courses that allow children to learn the Computing curriculum using iPads. As the world becomes increasingly rich with technology, Junior Jam teaches pupils to create programs, films, music and a range of other content, whilst encouraging them to express themselves and develop their own ideas using the latest apps. 

How is Computing taught?

Computing is discretely taught in a half term block throughout the school on a Friday. Our children benefit massively through a combination of subject knowledge and development of specific skills and competencies. Learning takes place mainly inside the classroom. Technology is an integral part of our Topic, Literacy and DT lessons and children refine their skills within these lessons too. 

What do we learn about in Computing ?

We learn about many aspects including Programming, Coding, Networking, Designing, Sequencing, Multimedia and Data Handling.
