Computing

ICT is used regularly in cross-curricular ways to teach then rehearse key ICT skills. Through explicit teaching children are learning to:

  • understand algorithms,
  • create and debug programs that accomplish specific goals
  • use logical reasoning to predict behaviour of simple programs
  • understand computer networks and the internet including E-Safety
  • use technology purposefully and effectively
  • use search technologies

SHPS Computing Curriculum Aims As defined by Somerset ELIM

In following the Somerset Computing Programme, informed by the new national curriculum, we intend that every learner will become a:

  • Digital Citizen who is safe and responsible
  • Digital Creator who is logical and creative
  • Digital Communicator who is digitally literate

The subject content in the Programmes of Study have been divided into threads to plan a progression for KS1 and KS2 learners to achieve identified skills and processes to become the above .

The Foundation Stage will follow their appropriate framework that fit into the strands identified by this Somerset planning.

All resources for this planning is available at the website below:

https://slp.somerset.gov.uk/cypd/elim/somersetict/Site%20Pages/Computing%20Curriculum%20Primary/Primary_Computing_home.aspx

Teachers at Staple Hill will modify this planning, as appropriate, to meet the needs of all our learners and to fit into our curriculum provisions.

Year 3/4 Coverage of Objectives: Strand by Strand

 

Term 1/2 Term 3/4 Term 5/6
e-Safety

Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognize acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.

Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.

 

Programming

Use logical reasoning to explain how simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.

Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.

Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.

 

Multimedia

Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.

Select, use and combine a variety of software (including Internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.

Technology in our lives

Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the worldwide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration.
