At Aston all Saints C of E Primary School, we plan and teach computing to develop a range of skills which show progression in computational thinking, logical reasoning, programming and e-safety. This is delivered through both discrete Computing lessons and in a cross curricular way through integrated sessions (particularly in Key Stage One and EYFS). Children are encouraged to think through their learning, make connections between it, linking to previous lessons, and apply skills to a range of different problems and contexts. Children will learn about digital literacy, information technology and computer science. To deliver the ambitious curriculum, Aston C of E Primary school subscribes to Purple Mash which delivers an exciting and engaging curriculum that allows for learning to be built upon and progress made through small steps in learning.
Children are taught about e-safety through half termly internet safety assemblies and individual class sessions.
Teaching and learning is planned from the National Curriculum (2014), broken down by year and term through the school’s yearly long-term planning. This is then further detailed in termly plans (medium term).
In Year 5, children have been learning to create spreadsheets. They have been selecting appropriate applications to devise, construct and manipulate data and present it in an effective and professional manner.
Thinkuknow has lots of excellent advice, support and guidance for parents in keeping children safe online.
