Open Evening 6-8pm Thursday 24th May

Computing

Coordinator Mr James Joyce

 

In Key Stage 1 our children will be taught to:

  • Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.
  • Create and debug simple programs.
  • Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.
  • Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.
  • Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; know where to go for help and support when they have concerns about material on the internet.
  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

 

In Key Stage 2 our children will be taught to:

  • Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
  • Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
  • Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.
  • Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world-wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration.
  • Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.
  • Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; know a range of ways to report concerns and inappropriate behaviour.
  • Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.

 

Super Learning Day 

 

Spring 1 Super Learning Day was a whole school opportunity for the children to learn more about their rights under the UN Convention on The Rights of the Child.

 

 

As part of the Super Learning Day, years 4, 5 & 6 took part in computing activities with Mr. Joyce and Mr. Ridgeway. Pupils were introduced to the Raspberry Pi computers and learned how to set up the computers as well as use them to code add on devices. The computing activities related to Article 17 of the convention.

 

Article 17

You have the right to collect information from the media.

Article 17 of the UNCRC says children and young people should be able to access information, particularly from the media. They should be able to get information from many places— from their country and beyond.

 

 

Safer Internet Day 2018

 

Safer Internet Day 2018 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018 with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.

 

Click here to visit the safer internet centre website to learn more about the day.

 

 

Children from Year 1 to Year 6 will be learning about how to stay safe online and how they can help be apart of a better internet for all.

 

 

 

E-Safety

 

E-safety is taught as part of the computing curriculum and focuses on helping children to use the internet safely. This may include issues such as keeping information private, cyberbullying, stranger danger and behaving respectfully online.

 

It can be difficult knowing where to start when it comes to helping your child stay safe online.

 Netaware is a fantastic resource which gives a simple overview and risk rating of the most popular apps and games that children are using. It can also be a great conversation starter with children about what they like to do online and how they stay safe.

 

You may feel uncertain of how to keep your child safe online and how to deal with any issues that may arise. The NSPCC has published a short document of guidance called Share Aware which you can view and download by clicking on the image below.

 

 

As part of the partnership between the NSPCC and O2, any parent or carer can take a device in to any O2 shop (they don’t have to be a customer) and ask for an appointment with a guru, who can show them how to set up safety settings.

 

There is also a helpline that offers advice and support about online safety

Tel: 0808 800 5002

In case you missed the E-safety workshop in January or would like to go over some of the points raised, you can view the presentation by selecting the document file below.

Digital Leaders

Digital Leaders 1 Our digital leaders

Our digital leaders play a very important part in ensuring we have a well maintained computing environment around the school. Meeting regularly they contribute their valued opinions and ideas as to how to proceed and keep up to date with the computing curriculum. They also troubleshoot and help us recognise and fix any equipment issues.
