Computing

Computing underpins a wide range of skills and curriculum areas across the school. At Nyewood CE Junior School we aim to provide children with a diverse range of skills and subject knowledge to help them research, explore, edit, produce work as well as developing their knowledge of coding and how technology works. Each class spends a minimum of 1 hour each week undertaking computing lessons as part of our Year group projects, although additional time is often built into the wider curriculum through English, maths  lessons.                            

 

Nyewood’s Computer Suite

Since the change in curriculum recently, coding and the understanding of how technology works underpins the vast majority of computing lessons, which either take place within the computing suite or using IPads depending on the requirements of the lesson. Coding is a set of instructions that underpin and make any action work whilst using technology, from clicking a mouse to playing a game. In computing lessons children learn how to create codes of varying complexities, correct problems with broken codes, to creating their own games taking account of all learnt skills.

As well as teaching coding, we also aim to equip children with the skills needed to be technologically literate for the future. As such children will have the opportunity to use programmes such as Word, PowerPoint as well as apps such IMovie to develop these required skills. Additionally the children will have opportunities to write their own blogs, learn how email can support communication, as well as using green screen technology.

Finally, the teaching and understanding of e-safety is a crucial element of computing lessons for both within use of technology in school and at home. Children are taught to stay SMART online which covers safety, meeting, accepting, reliability and telling (reporting).
