Computing at Pucklechurch

Curriculum Intent

At Pucklechurch, children are taught the impact of technology in our changing digital world, the skills in which to use systems and an understanding of doing this safely. 

Curriculum Implementation

 

At Pucklechurch, the computing curriculum covers a range of knowledge and skills which children will use within other curriculum subjects and in their daily lives, both at home and at school.  Across the school, we use a progressive scheme of work recommended and written by South Gloucestershire's computing specialists.

 

Our children learn through the use of a range of digital technology: computers, cameras, recording equipment, movement sensors and programmable robots.

 

The curriculum content falls under 3 broad headings:

  • Computer Science - where pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to apply this knowledge through programming.

  • Information Technology - in which pupils to create, organise and present a range of content using systems and programs.

  • Digital Literacy -  in which pupils are able to use technology to communicate and express themselves safely as active participants in a digital world.

We are fortunate enough to have a range of resources in which support the teaching and learning of computing skills such as beebots, learnpads and a portable laptop suite.
