Computing at Copeland Road.
Our Computing leader is Mrs Hughes
Our Computing governor is Mr Smith
Children at Copeland Road are taught computing in weekly sessions throughout the year. This allows children to gain a deeper understanding of the topics covered. In computing lessons, children learn using a range of different activities; these are both knowledge based and skills based. The children have access to desktops, laptops and tablets. We use a range of engaging online resources and the planning for computing is taken from Purple Mash. This is an award-winning cross-curricular website that enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way.
When children leave Copeland Road Primary, we would like them to be able to:
- Understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
- Be able to analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
- Evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
- Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
The long-term plan for Computing is below as well as the National Curriculum. There may be changes to the long-term plan as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
