Computing

God wants me to be the best me I can be in... 

Computing. 

The exciting things I will learn in Computing at St Joseph’s are:

 

At St Joseph’s, we follow the National Curriculum for Computing as a minimum, but do much more beyond this.  We have adapted the Purple Mash planning and interactive online resources to meet the needs of the children at our school. We have made sure the planning teaches computing skills progressively. We also use the national online safety resources to make sure we are regularly teaching the importance of being safe online. Every class has a set computing slot each week and teachers make sure these are highly engaging and interactive lessons.

 

The exciting things that take place in computing are:

 

Online safety weeks

Visits and interactive zooms

Use TT Rockstars

Tackle Cyber bullying

Use DuoLingo

Improve our reading and comprehension with Accelerated reader

Fly a drone

Use a green screen

 

 

 

Why do I need to know this? 

 

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
