We follow a broad and balanced Computing curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners. We follow a Computing scheme from the National Centre for Computing Education (NCEE) that ensures and progression of skills and covers all aspects of the Computing curriculum.
Teachers will plan a knowledge organiser which outline key knowledge and vocabulary which all children must master. Low stakes quizzes will be used regular to support learners’ ability to block learning and increase space in the working memory. Challenge questions will be planned by teachers to allow for pupils to apply their learning in a philosophical/open manner.
All classes will have a scheduled Computing lesson each week and there will be an expectation that technology will be utilised throughout other lessons in the curriculum.
Children’s work will be recorded using a class PowerPoint presentation. These will be used for reference and assessment, to provide a clear picture of the children’s learning journey throughout the year.
We want to ensure that Computing is embedded in our whole school curriculum and that opportunities for enhancing learning by using technology are always taken.
