Welcome to our Computing Curriculum!

The use of Computing is an integral part of the National Curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, IPads, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are but a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. At The Rosary Primary School we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to become Computing proficient.

The Early Years Foundation Stage

Within the Foundation Stage, we run continuous provision, where children have free access to all resources and opportunities, allowing them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding at their own pace and interest. We relate the computing development of the children to the points set out in the Foundation Stage Profile, as well as the age related expectations in Development Matters which underpin the curriculum planning for children from birth to five. The range of experiences encourages children to make connections between one area of learning and another and so extends their understanding.

 

Key Stage 1

In the new curriculum computing is seen to be a foundational subject, vital in helping children understand the digital world around them. Computational thinking is more about teaching kids problem-solving than coding languages, and the intellectual skills they'll gain will be useful for whatever they do in life.

Key Stage 2

In Key Stage 1, your child will have been given a solid grounding in the basics of computing, including understanding algorithms, creating simple programs and learning how to stay safe online.

In Key Stage 2, your child will build on these skills and extend their mastery of computers, as both user and creator. The computing curriculum aims to make children computionally aware, teaching them concepts (how to predict and analyse results, how to break a problem down into parts, how to spot and use similarities and how to evaluate) and approaches to help them problem-solve.
