In recent years, the school has invested money in computing, including a full time technician and class sets of laptops and iPads. The school follows the Rising Stars: Switched on Computing scheme for a timetabled slot each week.

Children in years 2-6 also have a timetabled slot for iPads to complete a session on Times Table Rockstars within school. Computing learning is also embedded in other curricular areas.

KS1 have been working very hard in our ICT lessons. We used 2 paint a picture to practice clicking and dragging. 

 

Curriculum - Computing - Bee Bots

Year 1 have enjoyed learning about algorithms and programming in ICT. We have been using the Bee Bot app to practice using the algorithms.

 

Curriculum - Computing - Animation

Year 2 have been learning to use stop motion to create an animation. 

They researched the type of animation they could make, planned their animation on a story board, wrote a script, created backgrounds and props as well as filming, recording and editing their animation. This was all completed independently.  We are all very proud of the work they have created, check out the videos below:

 

Curriculum - Computing - Wikipedia Pages

We have our own Wikipedia server in school and year 4 have been working hard on their pages. They have been researching rainforest animals and learning how to create and edit their own Wikipedia page.

 

Curriculum - Computing - E-Safety

Years 2, 3 and 4 discussed the importance of staying safe online. They read a story that had lots of messages explaining how to be safe online.

Children then discussed how to behave online. Following the discussion we created an online safety poster. 

 

Curriculum - Computing - Micro:bit Programming

We worked very hard looking at programming in computing.  It was a great opportunity to work well in small groups. We have been researching and then planning how they might program their Micro:bits in order to make a favourite toy interactive!

 

Curriculum - Computing - Scratch Programming

We have been making our own games using scratch!

 

Curriculum - Computing - Class Magazine

Well done to class 18 who have worked hard to create their own class magazine based on their interests. They used the internet to research their areas and used Microsoft Word and Publisher to display their learning in a fun and engaging way for the readers of their magazine.
