Computing

Subject Intent Statement

Our aim is to nurture children 'towards a better life' by providing a richly inspiring curriculum, suitable for all. They will be motivated by their school experience to achieve their personal potential in readiness for the next chapter in their lives. We challenge children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad and balanced curriculum. Our twelve core Values underpin everything we do within our inclusive school, where diversity is celebrated and children are taught to be members of the local, national and international community.

At Maulden Lower School, in their Computing lessons, children will:

  • Use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world
  • Develop independent and logical thinking through reasoning, decision making and problem-solving
  • Make deep links with mathematics, science and design technology
  • Build knowledge of principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming
  • Become digitally literate - able to use, express themselves, develop and present ideas through information and communication technology
  • Use technology safely, showing care for themselves and others, as well as the devices used 

 

Key Areas of Learning

Online Safety (digital literacy), Programming (Computer Science), Technology In Our Lives (Computer Science), Handling Data (ICT) and Multimedia (ICT).

Online-Safety 

Keeping children safe online is of paramount importance and we cover this regularly in PSHE, computing & other lessons where devices are used lessons in all year groups.

 

We follow the ActivBytes scheme of work and each year group has the same themes each term.

 

  • Autumn Term - I am kind and responsible
  • Spring Term - I am Safe and secure
  • Summer Term - I am Healthy

 

We are visited annually by Open View Education who provide Internet Safety Workshops for our children and our parents.
