Rationale for the Computing curriculum at Dringhouses
At Dringhouses Primary School we believe that every child should have the opportunity to use and experience a range of technologies.
We aim for children to become confident technology users who are, at minimum, computer literate; enabling them to fulfil their potential and thrive in an increasingly computer-reliant world. Our pupils learn key computer skills which includes developing typing fluency, researching online, coding and data handling which will support them throughout their future.
Aims of computing at Dringhouses:
As a school we aim to:
Children use a variety of different resources support their learning, both in weekly Computing lessons and where appropriate across the curriculum. Our pupils have the chance to use Chromebooks, Ipads and other hardware that we have at school such as electronic microscopes, beebots and microphones. To enhance the well-structured and progressive Computing curriculum with clear links between year groups, the school makes use of a range of computer programmes including Purple Mash, Scratch, Google software such as Docs, Classroom and Slides as well as many cross-curricular programmes, for example TTRockstars and Spelling Shed.
